The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure wish to advise that minor works have started on Main North Road near the intersection with Midway Road and Woodford Road at Elizabeth Downs.
The works will be carried out from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday to Friday until Thursday 2 April 2015, weather permitting. Speed restrictions will be in place.
The works will improve safety at the intersection of Main North Road and Midway and Woodford Roads by extending the right turn lanes on both Midway and Woodford Road approaches to the junction.

The works are funded $253,056 under the Australian Government Black Spot funding programme.
The department has committed to improve safety along its transport networks and to provide some practical responses to incidents of object throwing.
The South Australian Registrar of Motor Vehicles will refuse the registration of light vehicles fitted with defective Takata ‘Alpha’ type airbag inflators from 1 November 2018 until they are rectified to ensure the safety of all road users.
