The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure wish to advise that minor works have started on Main North Road near the intersection with Midway Road and Woodford Road at Elizabeth Downs.
The works will be carried out from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday to Friday until Thursday 2 April 2015, weather permitting. Speed restrictions will be in place.
The works will improve safety at the intersection of Main North Road and Midway and Woodford Roads by extending the right turn lanes on both Midway and Woodford Road approaches to the junction.
Also the signals on Midway and Woodford Roads will be upgraded to provide partial right turn control with minor road widening.
The works are funded $253,056 under the Australian Government Black Spot funding programme.
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.
