Contract Awarded for Point Sinclair Road Upgrade

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

15 June 2016

A South Australian company has won a $543 000 contract to upgrade sections of the Point Sinclair Road, near Penong.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that Ceduna Bulk Hauliers & Earthmovers Pty Ltd has been awarded the contract to undertake a total of 12 kilometres of re-sheeting on various sections of Point Sinclair Road.

This important upgrade will improve ride quality and safety for road users including local pastoralists, heavy vehicles and tourists and will assist the sections of road to drain during wet weather events.

Works are expected to commence on 16 June 2016 and be completed by the end of August 2016, weather permitting.

DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users. The works will be undertaken between 7.30am and 6.30pm on weekdays and weekends, over 21 day blocks, with seven day breaks, until completed.

The road will remain open to traffic with a 40 km/h speed restriction in place. Motorists and road users are requested to take extra care when workers are on site and observe traffic signage and speed restrictions when traveling through the area.

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

This important upgrade is funded by the Australian Government’s Roads to Recovery Programme.
