Safety to be improved on the Sturt Highway

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

15 March 2016

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is undertaking resealing works to improve safety on more than 0.9 kilometres of the Sturt Highway.

The resurfacing works will improve the surface quality and extend the life of the Sturt Highway from the junction of Murray Street, Nuriootpa, heading approximately 0.9km east.

These works, including all pavement markings, are scheduled to commence on Monday, 14 March 2016 and are expected to be completed by late March 2016, weather permitting.

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 being in place until the reinstatement of the pavement marking is complete.

The works are being funded by the Australian Government at an estimated cost of $ 63 000.

DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out.
