Sturt Highway, Monash (Berri Bypass) Shoulder Sealing

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

8 June 2016

Safety for motorists will soon be improved on the Sturt Highway with shoulder sealing works which commenced this week.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that a total of approximately 11 kilometres of shoulder sealing will be undertaken at three locations on the Sturt Highway (Berri Bypass) near Monash.

The works will provide a 1.5 metre wide sealed shoulder plus a 1.5 metre unsealed shoulder, improving safety for motorists by reducing the risk of ‘run-off road’ type crashes.

Works are expected to be completed by early July 2016, weather permitting.

DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users. The works will be undertaken between 7am and 5:30pm, Monday to Saturday.

The road will remain open to traffic, with a 25 km/h speed restriction in place while workers are on site. Lane and other speed restrictions may apply subject to onsite conditions.

The $750 000 safety initiative forms part of the $24.86 million Sturt Highway Productivity & Safety Improvements Project, which is a joint initiative of the South Australian and Australian Governments, being delivered as part of the Australian Government’s National Highway Upgrade Programme.

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