New lighting at Snowtown

14 May 2015

New LED lighting will improve road safety on the Augusta Highway at two junctions in Snowtown.

The works involve the installation of LED low-energy road lighting on the Augusta Highway at the junctions with Condowie Plain Road (also known as North Terrace) and Adelaide Road.

There have been several crashes at these junctions and tragically, in 2012, there was a death in the stretch of road between the junctions.

This new lighting will provide a much safer environment for all road users and reduce the likelihood of any further accidents.

The $385,000 investment is funded by the Motor Accident Commission’s Road Safety Infrastructure Fund.

Motor Accident Commission CEO Aaron Chia said the work would enhance night time road safety.

“MAC is pleased to invest in improved lighting at this location, which is part of a major South Australian transport route,” Mr Chia said.

Temporary lane and speed restrictions will apply during construction and motorists are asked to use extra caution when workers are on site. Every effort will be made to minimise the impact on road users during construction hours, however possible delays may be experienced.

Works will occur between 7.00 am to 5.00 pm, each day of the week and are expected to be finished by the end of June, weather permitting.
