The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that the speed limit on Henley Beach Road, between South Road and Stephens Avenue will be reduced from 60km/h to 50 km/h effective from Sunday 17 December 2017.
This stretch of road is a high activity pedestrian precinct and between 2012-2016 there were 12 pedestrian crashes including one fatal and two serious injury crashes.
This initiative will provide a safer environment for all road users, especially pedestrians, by reducing the risk and severity of crashes.
The speed limit signs will be supplemented with ‘Pedestrian Precinct’ signs to highlight the nature of the precinct and the new 50km/h zone.
Temporary Variable Message Signs will also be placed on site to advise drivers of the speed limit change.
Older vehicles are over-represented in fatal vehicle crashes and the average age of a vehicle involved in a fatality crash is increasing.
The South Australian Government is committed to the introduction of a heavy vehicle inspection scheme to identify, monitor and mitigate un-roadworthiness of heavy vehicles on South Australian roads.
Road users are advised the Anzac Highway/Brighton Road/Tapleys Hill Road intersection will be closed to all traffic for resurfacing works on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights, 13 – 15 August, between 9pm and 6am. Speed and land restrictions will also be in place between 7pm-9pm prior to the full closure.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) will be improving safety and traffic flow at the junction of McIntyre Road and The Golden Way, Wynn Vale, by installing an additional right turn lane from The Golden Way into McIntyre Road.
