Safety improvements on the Sturt Highway are currently underway, with the placement of approximately 3.5 km of audio tactile pavement markings between Truro and Accommodation Hill to improve the delineation of the road.
The markings reduce road crashes by providing noise (audio) and vibratory (tactile) warnings to road users who may stray to the edge of the road.
The project also reduces the slope of the road shoulder at this location to reduce the risk of vehicle roll-over if an errant vehicle leaves the road.
The work is being 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. The road will remain 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 speed restrictions in place at other times as required.
The works are expected to be completed by end of January 2015, weather permitting.
They are being carried out at a cost of $185,000 as part of the Australian Government funded Black Spot Programme.
