Safety for road users on the Stott Highway will soon be improved with resurfacing works commencing from Thursday, 19 March 2015.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that the resurfacing works will include a total of 6.9 kilometres on the Stott Highway approximately 2 kilometres east of Swan Reach.
The work will be 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.
A 25 km/h speed restriction and some minor lane restrictions will apply when workers are on site, with a maximum 80km/h speed restriction in place until the pavement marking is complete.
These works are expected to be completed by early April 2015, weather permitting.
The works are being carried out at a cost of $160 000 as part of the State Government’s Periodic Road Maintenance Program.
DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out.
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.
