21 April 2017

A total of 29 kilometres of audio tactile linemarking will be installed on various roads in the southern area of South Australia with work commencing on Wednesday, 26 April 2017.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is installing Audio Tactile Linemarking (ATLM) at the following locations:

  • Dukes Highway between Keith and Bordertown, 3.5km
  • Riddoch Highway between Penola and Nangwarry, 3km
  • South East Highway between Callington and Monarto, 3.5km
  • South East Highway between White Hill and Tailem Bend, 6.5km
  • Sturt Highway between Truro and Blanchetown, 4.5km
  • Sturt Highway between Blanchetown and Waikerie, 3.5km
  • Main South Road between Noarlunga – Cape Jervis, 4.5km

The ATLM will assist in reducing rural road crashes by providing noise and vibratory warning to road users who may veer towards the road edge due to fatigue or poor visibility.

Work will be undertaken between 9.00 am and 5.30 pm, 7 days a week, with expected completion by May 2017, weather permitting.

DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during construction hours with the road remaining open to traffic while the works are being undertaken.

The $130 000 works are jointly funded with the State Government contributing $32 000 and $98 000 from the Australian Government’s Periodic Road Maintenance Programme.

DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out.
