Safety improvements of Northern and Southern areas

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

20 June 2016

Safety on various roads in the Northern and Southern areas of the State will be improved with 7 kilometres of texture restoration works commencing on Thursday, 23 June 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 texture restoration works at the following locations:

  • Port Augusta to Port Wakefield, approximately 40km south of Port Augusta for 1.7km
  •  Port Augusta to Port Wakefield, approximately 5km south of Warnertown for 2km
  •  Sturt Highway, approximately 8km south of Renmark for 1.7km
  • Sturt Highway, Para Street, Renmark towards Paringa for 1.5km

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.

These works, are expected to be completed by mid July 2016, weather permitting.

The works are being carried out at an estimated cost of $147,000 as part of the Australian Government’s Periodic Road Maintenance Programme.

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