Safety Improvements on Upper Yorke Road

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

18 December 2015

Shoulder sealing works will improve safety for motorists on Upper Yorke Road.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that shoulder sealing works on a 5 kilometre section of Upper Yorke Road between Port Broughton and Bute, immediately southwest of the Port Broughton Township has already begun.

Providing sealed shoulders will improve safety for motorists by reducing the risk of ‘run-off road’ type crashes.

The works are currently on hold for the Christmas holidays, with no restrictions to road users. The works are scheduled to recommence on Monday, 4 January 2016.

DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during works. The works will be undertaken between 7.30 am and 5.30 pm, Monday to Saturday, weather permitting.

The road will remain open with minor lane restrictions in place, including 25 km/h speed restrictions, while workers are on site. Other speed restrictions may apply subject to onsite conditions.

The works are expected to be completed by the end of January 2016, weather permitting.

The $679,000 safety initiative is funded by the Australian Government’s Black Spot Programme.

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