The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is improving safety and efficiency for heavy vehicles, motorists and agricultural vehicles on the Upper Yorke Peninsula.
As part of the Upper Yorke Peninsula Regional Road Network Upgrade Program, approximately 6.4 kilometres of pavement rehabilitation, shoulder sealing and line marking will be undertaken along the Copper Coast Highway between Kadina and Paskeville.
Shoulder reconstruction and sealing will improve ride quality and comfort for road users and improve safety for motorists by reducing the risk of ‘road run-off’ type crashes.
Works will commence Tuesday 31 October 2017 and are expected to be completed by late-January 2018, weather permitting.
Works will occur between the hours of 7am and 5pm Monday to Friday, and 7am and 2pm on Saturdays.
The road will remain open to traffic with a 25km/h speed restriction in place while workers are on site. Other speed restrictions may apply subject to on site conditions.

The South Australian Government conducted an audit of speed cameras to ensure they are operating for safety purposes and not to raise revenue.

Surfacing works to improve safety on Goyder Highway between Burra and Morgan are set to commence next week.
