Safety upgrade at Victor Harbour Rd intersection

20 January 2014

Safety for road users will soon be improved at the Victor Harbor Road intersection with Hindmarsh Tiers Road and Virgin Road with a $750,000 upgrade.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that the final stage of works to improve road safety at the intersection are underway. The project involves the construction of a sheltered left turn lane on Victor Harbor Road into Hindmarsh Tiers Road, which will improve safety for motorists by reducing the risk of rear end and right angle type crashes.

Asphalt works also are being undertaken at the intersection to improve surface quality and sight distance thereby further improving safety for motorists.

Construction work is undertaken between 7.00am and 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.

DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during construction hours. The road will remain open to traffic with minor lane restrictions in place while the works are being undertaken. A 25 km/h speed restriction will apply when workers are on site. Other speed restrictions may apply subject to onsite conditions.Advance warning and roadwork signs will be in place during the works.

The works are expected to be completed by April 2014, weather permitting.

The $750,000 project is funded by the State Government’s Black Spot Program. It is in addition to the $375,000 works completed last financial year.

DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out.
