Motorists will soon enjoy a safer ride on Victor Harbor Road with the start of works to improve road surface quality.
The Department is undertaking maintenance work at various locations within a 2.5 kilometre section on Victor Harbor Road between Willunga Hill and Yundi turn off.
The works will be carried out between 9.00 am and 4.00 pm until Thursday, 14 May 2015, weather permitting.
The works will address rutting and shape of the road in preparation for resurfacing, which will occur later in the year.
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, with an 80 km/h speed restriction being in place until the reinstatement of the pavement marking is complete.
The $120,000 project is funded by the Motor Accident Commission.
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.
