DPTI Media Release - Safety to be improved on the Noarlunga to Cape Jervis
28 November 2016
Safety on the Noarlunga to Cape Jervis Road will soon be improved with shoulder sealing, audio tactile line marking and safety barrier works commencing today.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that works will include 2.8 kilometres of shoulder sealing, 8.9 kilometres of audio tactile line marking and 1.5 kilometres of safety barrier on the Noarlunga to Cape Jervis Road, between Sellicks Hill and Reservoir Road.
The audio tactile line marking creates noise and vibration when a vehicle strays from the road which, together with the shoulder sealing, will improve safety for motorists by reducing the risk of run-off road type crashes.
Safety barriers protect road users from roadside hazards, thereby minimising the severity of vehicle accident injury and property damage.
The works are expected to be completed by March 2017, weather permitting.
DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during these works. The work will be undertaken between 7.00am and 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
The road will remain open, with traffic restricted to one lane under traffic control when required and a 25 km/h speed restriction while workers are on site. Other speed restrictions may apply subject to onsite conditions.
The $405,000 safety initiative is funded by the Australian Government’s Black Spot Programme.
DPTI thanks motorists for their cooperation and patience while these important safety works are undertaken.
