The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) has begun installing vehicle activated signs on the Pfeiffer Road and Riverview Road approaches to the Woodside/Nairne Road intersection to improve safety for all road users.
In the five year period between 2010 and 2014 there were nine casualty crashes at the intersection, resulting in six serious injuries and 13 minor injuries. Investigations revealed the cause of these crashes was failure to stop at the intersection.
The vehicle-activated signs are warning signs with flashing lights that are activated by approaching vehicles and will alert drivers to the fact they are approaching an intersection and must stop and give way.
Work on site has commenced and the signs are expected to be operational early December 2015.

DPTI thanks road users and local residents for their patience and understanding
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.
