Maintenance works on Main South Road to improve the surface quality of the road will commence on Sunday, 8 June 2014.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is undertaking a total of 250 metres of rut filling works on Main South Road, approximately 13 kilometres south of Normanville.
The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm on each day of the week.
DPTI advises 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.
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.
Works are expected to be completed by mid June 2014, weather permitting.
The works are being carried out at a cost of $56,500 as part of the State Government’s Routine Road Maintenance Program.
DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these essential works are carried out.
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.
