Safety to be improved on the South Eastern Freeway

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

13 January 2017

Safety on various sections of the South Eastern Freeway will be improved with more than 10.7 kilometres of reseal works commencing on Monday, 16 January 2017.

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:

  • Callington – Murray Bridge, commencing at the Bremer River for 3.2 km
  • White Hill – River Murray, approximately 4km east of the White Hill Interchange for 2.3km
  • Murray Bridge - Tailem Bend, approximately 8km south of Murray Bridge for 2.3km
  • Murray Bridge - Tailem Bend, approximately 15km south of Murray Bridge for 2.9km

The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30pm Monday to Saturday, weather permitting.

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 March 2017, weather permitting.

The works are being carried out at an estimated cost of $905 000 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.
