The second stage of a $9 million upgrade of a major rural road connecting the upper Yorke Peninsula towns of Bute and Kulpara will begin in March.
About nine kilometres of the Bute to Kulpara Road will be reconstructed in the $2.8 million second stage of the three-year project.
Another four kilometres has already been upgraded in the first stage of the project last year.
In all, 20 kilometres of the rural arterial road is being resealed over the three years of the project.
The works include shoulder widening, pavement reconstruction and full width resealing.
The project will support about seven full-time equivalent jobs during construction, which is expected to commence in March 2016.
The tender, which was awarded to Fulton Hogan, was conducted in line with the State Government’s Industry Participation Policy.
Weather permitting, the pavement, resealing and shoulder widening works will be completed by June. A final seal will be applied later in the year, before the end of 2016.

The department has committed to improve safety along its transport networks and to provide some practical responses to incidents of object throwing.
The South Australian Registrar of Motor Vehicles will refuse the registration of light vehicles fitted with defective Takata ‘Alpha’ type airbag inflators from 1 November 2018 until they are rectified to ensure the safety of all road users.
The lowered motorway constructed as part of the $801 million Torrens Road to River Torrens Project Torrens will be opened to traffic on Saturday 29 September.
Preliminary works for the upgrade of the Main North Road intersection with Dalkeith Road and Smith Road are currently underway, with Telstra early works to commence from Wednesday 5 September.
