Safety to be improved on the South Eastern Freeway

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

20 November 2015

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that safety will soon be improved on the South Eastern Freeway at the Monarto Interchange, with works currently underway.

Works will include the extension of the south bound on ramp by about 100 metres, which will increase the safety for vehicles to merge with traffic.

With the establishment of a number of distribution centres based at the Monarto industrial estate, the number of heavy vehicles utilising the Monarto interchange has increased. These works will improve the safety of all traffic at this location.

Construction work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 4.00 pm, Monday to Friday.

DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during construction. The road will remain open to traffic with minor lane restrictions in place while the works are being undertaken.

DPTI advises a 25 km/h speed restriction will apply when workers are on site, with 80 km/h speed restriction in place at other times until the works are complete.

The works are expected to be completed by the end of November 2015, weather permitting.

The $145,000 project is being fully funded by the Australian Government.

DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important works are undertaken.
