Safety upgrade on the Mount Compass to Goolwa Road

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

5 May 2017

Safety will soon be improved on the Mount Compass to Goolwa Road, with works commencing Wednesday 10 May 2017.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that the works involve the upgrade of a 450 metre section of the Mount Compass to Goolwa Road near Currency Creek.

The works include widening the road and lowering the crest to improve sight distances.

Shoulder sealing and the installation of 350 metres of safety barrier will also be undertaken.

Sealed shoulders, together with the installation of safety barriers will improve safety for all road users at this location by reducing the risk of ‘run-off road’ type crashes and providing protection from roadside hazards, thereby minimising the severity of vehicle accident injury and property damage.

DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users, with works being undertaken between 7.30 am and 5:00pm, seven days a week weather permitting.

The road will remain open, with traffic restricted to one lane under traffic control during working hours.

A 25 km/h speed restriction will apply while workers are on site, with a maximum 40 km/h speed restriction being in place at other times during construction.

The $1.54 million safety initiative is funded by the State Government’s Asset Improvement Program.

DPTI thanks motorists for their cooperation and patience while these important safety works are undertaken.
