The 80km/h speed limit will be extended past Little Islands Road intersection on the Streaky Bay to Poochera Road, and past the Streaky Bay Transfer Station on Flinders Highway.
The change – which will be implemented by early December – follows strong representation on behalf of the community from the District Council of Streaky Bay and particularly Mayor Sherron MacKenzie.
Mayor MacKenzie said she was delighted with the news.
"The community has been concerned about these particular sections of roads leading into our town for quite a while," Ms MacKenzie said.
"I would like to thank all those involved in making this happen."
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.
