Works begins on Noarlunga to Victor Harbor Road

2 October 2015

Safety upgrades on the Noarlunga to Victor Harbor Road will start next Tuesday, 6 October.

Announced last November as part of a package of upgrades to key roads across South Australia, the works include installing a 1.2 metre wide central painted median along a three kilometre section of the Noarlunga to Victor Harbor Road, between Old Willunga Hill Road and Yundi Road.

Audio-tactile line marking will also be installed as part of the central median, to help prevent the risk of head on road crashes.

These markings make noise and cause the vehicle to vibrate when driven over to alert road users that their vehicle is veering.

The project also includes extending the sheltered right turn lane at the junction with Pages Flat Road, resurfacing works and the replacement safety barriers.

The upgrade is a $1.95 million investment from the Motor Accident Commission’s Road Safety Infrastructure Fund.

MAC CEO Aaron Chia said these improvements would provide a safer environment for all road users.

"This stretch of road is utilised by both the local community and many visitors travelling to and from the Victor Harbor area," Mr Chia said.

"We know that most road fatalities occur in regional South Australia and this work will improve road safety in the area."

Works will be undertaken between 9.00 am and 4.00 pm, Monday to Friday and are expected to be completed by March 2016, weather permitting.

DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users. The road will remain open to traffic with minor lane restrictions in place and a 25km/h speed restriction when workers are onsite.

DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out.
