Safety for road users on the Stott Highway will soon be improved with resurfacing works commencing from Thursday, 19 March 2015.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that the resurfacing works will include a total of 6.9 kilometres on the Stott Highway approximately 2 kilometres east of Swan Reach.
The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm, each day of the week. DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during construction hours.
A 25 km/h speed restriction and some minor lane restrictions will apply when workers are on site, with a maximum 80km/h speed restriction in place until the pavement marking is complete.
These works are expected to be completed by early April 2015, weather permitting.
The works are being carried out at a cost of $160 000 as part of the State Government’s Periodic Road Maintenance Program.
DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety 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.
