Safety to be improved in the Fleurieu Area

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

26 April 2016

Safety on various roads in the Fleurieu area of the State will be improved with more than 4.5 kilometres of rut filling works commencing on Wednesday, 27 April 2016.

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

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

  • Callington to Goolwa Road, approximately 10km south of Strathalbyn for 2.2km
  • Victor Harbor Road, south of Mount Compass township for 550m
  • Main South Road, approximately 6km south of Second Valley for 900m
  •  Inman Valley Road, approximately 5km south east of Yankalilla for 1.3km

The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm, each day of the week, except Victor Harbor Road which will be undertaken between 9.00 am and 3.30 pm, Monday to Friday.

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 May 2016, weather permitting.

The works are being carried out at an estimated cost of $269,000 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.
