Safety on Angas Valley Road will soon be improved with shoulder sealing works commencing Monday, 26 February 2018.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that three kilometres of shoulder sealing will be undertaken along Angas Valley Road (otherwise known as Mount Pleasant to Walker Flat Road) between Groths Road and Milendella Road near Angas Valley.
Providing sealed shoulders will improve safety for motorists by reducing the risk of ‘run-off road’ type crashes.
The road will remain open with traffic restricted to one lane under traffic control when required and a 25 km/h speed restriction will be in place while workers are on site. Other speed restrictions may apply subject to on site conditions.
DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during these works. The work will be undertaken between 7:00am and 5:30pm, Monday to Friday.
The works are expected to be completed by March 2018, weather permitting.
The $125,000 safety initiative is funded by the Australian Government’s Black Spot Program.
DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out.
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.
