Safety to be improved on the Sturt and Dukes Highways

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

12 April 2017

Safety on a section of the Sturt Highway and Dukes Highway will be improved with more than 560 metres of pavement rehabilitation and surfacing works commencing on Tuesday, 18 April 2017.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is undertaking pavement rehabilitation and surfacing works to improve the surface quality and extend the life of the road at the following locations:

  • Sturt Highway, Staggered T Junction, Coates and Drogemuller Roads, Cobdogla for 120 metres
  • Dukes Highway approximately 6 km east of Bordertown for 370 metres
  • Dukes Highway approximately 8 km east of Bordertown for 73 metres

The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm 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.

A 25 km/h speed restriction will apply when workers are on site, with a maximum 80 km/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 end of April 2017, weather permitting.

The works are being carried out at an estimated cost of $240,000 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.
