Safety on various sections of roads on the Fleurieu Peninsula and the Murray Bridge and Tailem Bend area will be improved with more than 11 kilometres of resealing works commencing today.
The works will improve the surface quality and extend the life of the roads.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is undertaking resealing works at the following locations:
The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30pm Monday to Saturday, weather permitting.
DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during construction hours, with the road remaining open to traffic with minor lane restrictions in place while the works are being undertaken.
DPTI advises a 25 km/h speed restriction will apply when workers are on site, with a maximum 80km/h speed restriction being in place until the reinstatement of the pavement marking is complete.
These works, including all pavement marking, are expected to be completed by March 2017, weather permitting.
The works are being carried out at an estimated cost of $725 000 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.
All remaining cars fitted with a critical defective Takata type airbag inflator will now be refused registration in South Australia from Monday, 10 August until they are rectified, to ensure the safety of all road users.
As the popularity of electric and hybrid vehicles grows, DPTI reminds potential traders and buyers of the requirement to fix a safety label onto their numberplates.
Works to improve ride quality will be undertaken on McIntyre Road between The Golden Way and Wright Road, commencing each night from 7pm, Tuesday, 18 February to 6am, Friday, 6 March, weather permitting.
The South Australian Government is delivering $7.39 million worth of essential resurfacing works to five sections of the South Eastern Freeway between Mount Barker and Callington, with night works beginning this week.
