New travel time signs for motorists travelling home this Easter

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

17 April 2017

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) encourages motorists travelling home from the Yorke Peninsula or Mid North to use the latest travel time signs to reduce their delays.

Two new travel time signs are comparing the average travel time to Two Wells via the Port Wakefield Township and the alternate route via Balaklava and Mallala, allowing motorists to choose the quickest route.

Motorists will find these signs at the Paskeville Field Days site next to the Copper Coast Highway, just before the Ninnes Road turnoff to Lochiel, and next to Highway 1 south of Lochiel, just before the Nantawarra Road turn-off to Balaklava.

These signs join a successful network across Adelaide, using Bluetooth data to determine in real-time the average time it takes to get to certain points.

This state-of-the-art technology is also used by DPTI’s Addinsight app, which sends spoken alerts with information about unusual delays on the road ahead via your phone's loud speaker or connected hands-free kit.

DPTI encourages all motorists to be patient on our roads this Easter Monday, keep to the speed limit, take regular breaks if driving long distances and drive with care to ensure the safety of all road users.
