Safety to be improved on the Limestone Coast
27 September 2016
Safety on various sections of roads on the Limestone Coast the National Highway will be improved with more than three kilometres of rut filling works commencing on Saturday, 1 October 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:
- Riddoch Highway, approximately 12km south of Penola for 700m
- Glenelg River Road, approximately 1km south of Mount Gambier for 600m
- Glenelg River Road, approximately 23km south of Mount Gambier for 1.7km
The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30pm 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 mid October 2016, weather permitting.
The works are being carried out at an estimated cost of $140,000 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.
