Safety for road users on the Mannum Road will soon be improved with resurfacing works commencing from Thursday, 16 April 2015.
The resurfacing works will include a total of 80 metres on the Mannum Road approximately 15 kilometres south of Mannum at the intersection of Wagenknecht and Rathjen Roads.
The work will be carried-out between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm, until the end of April, weather permitting. 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.
The works are being carried out at a cost of $60,000 as part of the State Government’s Periodic Road Maintenance Program.
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.
