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.
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.
