Upgrades to improve rural road safety

5 December 2016

Nine rural black spots will be upgraded as part of a $10.4 million investment in rural road safety.

Rural road safety improvements for 2016/17 will include roadside hazard protection, shoulder sealing, the installation of safety barriers and intersection upgrades at a number of sites that have been identified as rural black sports.

Upgrades will take place along the Mount Compass to Goolwa Road, Mount Barker to Strathalbyn Road and on the Flinders Highway at Coontapoo.

The upgrades include shoulder sealing to reduce vehicle run-off-road casualty crashes and the installation of safety barriers to prevent crashes with roadside hazards.

The State Government in partnership with local councils will contribute more than $800,000 for black spot projects at Para Wirra Road, Williamstown, the Wright Road and RM Williams Drive intersection, Salisbury, and the Murray Bridge Road / Belvedere Road intersection, Mannum.

The rural road safety upgrades are part of the State Government’s commitment to reducing deaths and injuries on roads in South Australia.
