Safety to be improved on the Yankalilla to Victor Harbor Road
27 April 2017
Safety on the Yankalilla to Victor Harbor Road will soon be improved with the replacement of Watts Bridge just south of Back Valley Road commencing Monday 1 May 2017.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that the new bridge will be wider with new barriers installed across the bridge and on both approaches.
The upgrade will improve safety at the bridge and will assist to protect road users from the hazardous drop-off over Back Valley Creek, thereby minimising the severity of vehicle accident injury and property damage at this location.
To enable the upgrade to be undertaken, the Yankalilla to Victor Harbor Road will be closed at this location for approximately five weeks commencing Wednesday, 3 May 2017. Signage will be in place to detour road users via Sawpit Road, Greenhills Road and Armstrong Road.
DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users. The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm, Monday to Friday.
A 25 km/h speed restriction will apply while workers are on site, with other speed restrictions possible subject to onsite conditions.
The works are expected to be completed by mid June 2017, weather permitting.
The $1.225 million safety initiative is funded by the Australian Government’s Black Spot Programme, and includes $470,000 worth of safety improvements on the same road completed in 2016.
DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out.
