More than $400,000 is being spent improving safety on the Limestone Coast with resurfacing works scheduled to start on six road sections.
The Riddoch Highway, Princes Highway and the Glenelg River Road have all been targeted for the upgrades.
These works will improve the safety and reliability of travel for road users travelling in the Limestone Coast region and are funded as part of the annual road maintenance works.
The Limestone Coast works will involve the resurfacing of:
The works are due to start this week and should be complete by the end of October, weather permitting.
A 25 km/h speed restriction and some minor lane restrictions will apply when workers are on site.
Outside of work hours, a maximum 80 km/h speed restriction will apply until the road marking is complete.
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.
