Maintenance works on Main South Road to improve the surface quality of the road will commence on Sunday, 8 June 2014.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is undertaking a total of 250 metres of rut filling works on Main South Road, approximately 13 kilometres south of Normanville.
The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm on each day of the week.
DPTI advises a 25 km/h speed restriction will apply when workers are on site, with speed restrictions in place at other times until line marking is complete.
DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during construction hours, with the road remaining open to traffic and minor lane restrictions in place while the works are being undertaken.
Works are expected to be completed by mid June 2014, weather permitting.
The works are being carried out at a cost of $56,500 as part of the State Government’s Routine Road Maintenance Program.
DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these essential 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 Government conducted an audit of speed cameras to ensure they are operating for safety purposes and not to raise revenue.
Works to improve safety on various sections of roads in the Upper North Area, including more than 41km of surfacing works, will begin on Saturday, 16 March.
Surfacing works to improve safety on Goyder Highway between Burra and Morgan are set to commence next week.
