Works to improve safety at the Noarlunga to Victor Harbor Road junction with Meadows to Willunga Road have started.
The works will include the installation of an improved traffic management layout at the junction, which includes lengthening of the turning lanes from the Noarlunga to Victor Harbor Road into the Meadows to Willunga Road.
These works will improve delineation and safety for motorists by reducing the risk of ‘rear end’ and ‘right angle’ type crashes.
In addition, the junction will be resurfaced improving the surface quality and making a smoother ride.
The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm, Monday to Friday. The road will be kept 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.
The $140,000 project, which is funded by the State Government’s State Minor Works Program, is expected to be completed by April 2015, weather permitting.
All remaining cars fitted with a critical defective Takata type airbag inflator will now be refused registration in South Australia from Monday, 10 August until they are rectified, to ensure the safety of all road users.
As the popularity of electric and hybrid vehicles grows, DPTI reminds potential traders and buyers of the requirement to fix a safety label onto their numberplates.
Works to improve ride quality will be undertaken on McIntyre Road between The Golden Way and Wright Road, commencing each night from 7pm, Tuesday, 18 February to 6am, Friday, 6 March, weather permitting.
The South Australian Government is delivering $7.39 million worth of essential resurfacing works to five sections of the South Eastern Freeway between Mount Barker and Callington, with night works beginning this week.
