Works on the Sturt Highway to improve the surface quality of the road will commence on Wednesday 11 June 2014.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is undertaking a total of 390 metres of rut filling works on the Sturt Highway between Twentyfirst Street and Twentythird Street, Renmark.
The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm on 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 mid June 2014, weather permitting.
The works are being carried out at a cost of $39,000 as part of the Federal Government’s Infrastructure Investment Programme.
DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these essential works are carried out.
Drug drivers will face an automatic loss of licence under tough new drug-driving laws to be introduced to Parliament.
A new safety campaign has launched to send a powerful reminder to drivers to slow down and play their part in keeping our road crews safe.
Safety on the Flinders Highway will soon be improved with safety barrier installation, shoulder sealing and line marking works commencing today.
Safety on various sections of the South Eastern Freeway will be improved with more than 10.7 kilometres of reseal works commencing on Monday, 16 January 2017.
