Safety on roads in the Limestone Coast area will be improved with more than 17 kilometres of roads to be resurfaced commencing on Monday 12 January 2015.
The $1,316,000 resealing works will extend the life of these roads and are expected be complete by the middle of February, weather permitting.
The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm, each day of the week, with the road remaining 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 an 80km/h speed restriction in place until the reinstatement of the pavement marking is complete.
Resurfacing will be carried out at the following locations:
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.
Three teams have been awarded the D3 Digital Challenge Launch Pad Award – a $15,000 grant to turn their idea into a prototype to encourage kids to travel actively and safely to and from school.
We have launched our new online Road Works Schedule to provide the community with a forward view of upcoming Departmental road works and traffic restrictions on the arterial road network across the State.
Sections of seven roads in the Riverland, Murray Mallee and Murray Bridge will be resealed improving safety and extending the life of each road.
