Safety on Angas Valley Road will soon be improved with shoulder sealing works commencing Monday, 26 February 2018.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that three kilometres of shoulder sealing will be undertaken along Angas Valley Road (otherwise known as Mount Pleasant to Walker Flat Road) between Groths Road and Milendella Road near Angas Valley.
Providing sealed shoulders will improve safety for motorists by reducing the risk of ‘run-off road’ type crashes.
The road will remain open with traffic restricted to one lane under traffic control when required and a 25 km/h speed restriction will be in place while workers are on site. Other speed restrictions may apply subject to on site conditions.
DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during these works. The work will be undertaken between 7:00am and 5:30pm, Monday to Friday.
The works are expected to be completed by March 2018, weather permitting.
The $125,000 safety initiative is funded by the Australian Government’s Black Spot Program.
DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out.
The department has committed to improve safety along its transport networks and to provide some practical responses to incidents of object throwing.
The South Australian Government conducted an audit of speed cameras to ensure they are operating for safety purposes and not to raise revenue.
Works to improve safety on various sections of roads in the Upper North Area, including more than 41km of surfacing works, will begin on Saturday, 16 March.
Surfacing works to improve safety on Goyder Highway between Burra and Morgan are set to commence next week.
