Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Stephen Mullighan today announced road shoulders on the Barrier Highway in the mid-north are set to be widened, as part of a $3.3 million safety initiative funded by the State Government’s Shoulder Sealing Program.
Mr Mullighan said the road upgrade will greatly improve safety for the travelling public by reducing the risk of off-road and head on accidents.
“Construction work has commenced on the widening of a 22 kilometre section of the highway between Hallett and Terowie, to allow for the installation of sealed shoulders,” Mr Mullighan said.
“Shoulder sealing also allows left turning traffic to use the sealed shoulder, which assists in reducing delays for through traffic.
“The works are expected to be completed the end of September 2014, weather permitting, and I thank motorists for their patience while these important safety initiatives are carried out.”
During this time traffic control measures will be in place at the construction sites, including speed restrictions and the roads being reduced to one lane.
