The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) will be improving safety and traffic flow on Montague Road at the Port Wakefield Road intersection with Churchill Road North at Cavan.
These safety improvements will include:
The improvements will reduce the risk of rear end crashes at this location, as well as improve heavy vehicle movement, cyclist safety and vehicle accessibility.
Works are scheduled to commence on Monday 19 March 2018 and are expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2018, weather permitting.
To minimise traffic impacts, construction work will be undertaken as a combination of day and night works.
Roads will remain open to traffic with a 25km/h speed restriction in place while workers are on site. Lane and other speed restrictions may apply subject to onsite conditions.
DPTI appreciates your cooperation and patience while these important safety works are undertaken.
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.
The lowered motorway constructed as part of the $801 million Torrens Road to River Torrens Project Torrens will be opened to traffic on Saturday 29 September.
Preliminary works for the upgrade of the Main North Road intersection with Dalkeith Road and Smith Road are currently underway, with Telstra early works to commence from Wednesday 5 September.
