Road safety in Limestone Coast

08 Jan 2015

Safety on roads in the Limestone Coast area will be improved with more than 17 kilometres of roads to be resurfaced commencing on Monday 12 January 2015.

The $1,316,000 resealing works will extend the life of these roads and are expected be complete by the middle of February, weather permitting.

The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm, each day of the week, 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 an 80km/h speed restriction in place until the reinstatement of the pavement marking is complete.

  • Riddoch Highway, approximately 5 kilometres south of Tarpeena for 2.5 kilometres
  • Bordertown to Naracoorte Road, approximately 2 kilometres south of Bordertown for 470 metres
  • Wimmera Highway, approximately 4 kilometres east of Naracoorte for 2.6 kilometres
  • Princes Highway, approximately 4 kilometres east of Mount Gambier for 800 metres
  • Princes Highway, approximately 16 kilometres east of Mount Gambier for 850 metres
  • Princes Highway, approximately 19 kilometres east of Mount Gambier for 1.3 kilometres
  • Beachport to Millicent Road, approximately 2 kilometres east of Beachport for 1.9 kilometres
  • Glenelg Highway, approximately 8 kilometres west of State Border for 550 metres
  • Mount Gambier to Nelson Road, approximately 19 kilometres south of Mount Gambier for 4.3 kilometres
  • Mount Gambier to Nelson Road, approximately 28 kilometres south of Mount Gambier for 2.3 kilometres.
The works are being carried out as part of the State Government’s Periodic Road Maintenance Program.
