More than $400,000 is being spent improving safety on the Limestone Coast with resurfacing works scheduled to start on six road sections.

The Riddoch Highway, Princes Highway and the Glenelg River Road have all been targeted for the upgrades.

These works will improve the safety and reliability of travel for road users travelling in the Limestone Coast region and are funded as part of the annual road maintenance works.

The Limestone Coast works will involve the resurfacing of:

  • Riddoch Highway, more than 2.4km section, approximately 4km south of Keith
  • Riddoch Highway, more than 1.5km section, approximately 13km south of Tarpeena
  • Riddoch Highway , about 700m section from Pinehall Road to Wireless Road, Mount Gambier
  • Princes Highway, more than 2.7km section, 9km north of Millicent
  • Princes Highway, 140m from Graham Avenue to Sutton Avenue, Mount Gambier
  • Glenelg River Road, more than 2.7km section, 16km south of Mount Gambier

The works are due to start this week and should be complete by the end of October, weather permitting.

A 25 km/h speed restriction and some minor lane restrictions will apply when workers are on site.

Outside of work hours, a maximum 80 km/h speed restriction will apply until the road marking is complete.
