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.

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.
