Safety to be improved on the South East Highway
18 February 2016
Safety on the South East Highway will be improved with more than 15 kilometres of road to be resurfaced commencing on Friday, 19 February 2016.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is undertaking resealing works to improve the surface quality and extend the life of the roads at the following locations:
- Callington Interchange to approximately 3km east, Adelaide bound lanes for 3.8km
- Approximately 8km of the Callington Interchange Tailem Bend bound lanes for 1.0km
- Approximately 8km of the Callington Interchange, Adelaide bound lanes for 3.0km
- Approximately 12km east of the Callington Interchange, Tailem Bend bound lanes for 2.7km
- Approximately 3km east of the White Hill Interchange, Adelaide bound lanes for 1.4km
- Approximately 5km east of the White Hill Interchange, Adelaide bound lanes for 1.9km
- Tailem Bend Township, Adelaide bound lanes for 1.2km.
The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm, seven days per week.
DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during construction hours, with the road remaining open to traffic with minor lane restrictions in place while the works are being undertaken.
A 25 km/h speed restriction will apply when workers are on site, with a maximum 80km/h speed restriction in place until the reinstatement of the pavement marking is complete.
These works, including all pavement markings, are expected to be completed by mid March 2016, weather permitting.
This package of road maintenance works are being fully funded by the Australian Government at a cost of $1.3 million.
DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out.
