Maintenance works along the Limestone Coast to improve the surface quality of the roads commence on Sunday 1 June 2014.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is undertaking rut filling works at the following locations:
The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm each day of the week.
DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during construction hours, with the road remaining open to traffic and 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 speed restrictions in place at other times until line marking is complete.
Works are expected to be completed by end of June 2014, weather permitting.
The works are being carried out at a cost of $253,200 as part of the State Government’s Periodic Road Maintenance Program.
The department has committed to improve safety along its transport networks and to provide some practical responses to incidents of object throwing.
The South Australian Registrar of Motor Vehicles will refuse the registration of light vehicles fitted with defective Takata ‘Alpha’ type airbag inflators from 1 November 2018 until they are rectified to ensure the safety of all road users.
The lowered motorway constructed as part of the $801 million Torrens Road to River Torrens Project Torrens will be opened to traffic on Saturday 29 September.
Preliminary works for the upgrade of the Main North Road intersection with Dalkeith Road and Smith Road are currently underway, with Telstra early works to commence from Wednesday 5 September.
