Works to improve safety at the Noarlunga to Victor Harbor Road junction with Meadows to Willunga Road have started.
The works will include the installation of an improved traffic management layout at the junction, which includes lengthening of the turning lanes from the Noarlunga to Victor Harbor Road into the Meadows to Willunga Road.
These works will improve delineation and safety for motorists by reducing the risk of ‘rear end’ and ‘right angle’ type crashes.
In addition, the junction will be resurfaced improving the surface quality and making a smoother ride.
The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm, Monday to Friday. The road wil be kept 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. Other speed restrictions may apply subject to onsite conditions.
The $140,000 project, which is funded by the State Government’s State Minor Works Program, is expected to be completed by April 2015, weather permitting.
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.
