Safety to be improved in the Murray Bridge area

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

8 April 2016

Safety on various roads in the Murray Bridge area will be improved with more than 280 metres of resurfacing commencing Monday, 11 April 2016.

The resurfacing works will improve the surface quality and extend the life of the roads.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is undertaking resurfacing at the following locations: 

  • Reedy Creek Road, approximately 21km south of Palmer at the Pallamana Railway Crossing for 140m
  •  Old Princes Highway, eastside of Murray Bridge at the junction of the Karoonda Highway for 140m
    The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm, each day of the 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.

DPTI advises 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.

These works, including all pavement marking, are expected to be completed by late April 2016, weather permitting.

The works are being carried out at an estimated cost of $175,000 as part of the State Government’s Periodic Road Maintenance Program.

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