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.

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is undertaking pavement surfacing works to improve the surface quality and extend the life of roads at the following locations:

  • Augusta Highway, approx. 6.5km South of Port Germein, for 1.6km
  • Augusta Highway, approx. 9km South of Port Germein, for 1.7km
  • Augusta Highway, between the Northern and Southern accesses to Crystal Brook, for 1.8km
  • Augusta Highway, at the junction with Pareora Road, approx. 4km North of Port Wakefield, for 0.9km
  • Stuart Highway, approx. 21km South of Cadney Park, for 5.4km
  • Stuart Highway, Pootnoura, approx. 26km South of Cadney Park, for 2.7km

  • Stuart Highway, Mt Willoughby, approx. 46km North of Coober Pedy, for 8km
  • Stuart Highway, Breakaway’s Turnoff, approx. 20km North of Coober Pedy, for 12km

Work will be undertaken between 7am and 5.30pm Monday to Sunday, with expected completion in mid-May, weather permitting.

The road will remain open to traffic with minor lane restrictions and a 25 km/h speed restriction will apply when workers are on site, with a maximum 80 km/h speed restriction in place until the reinstatement of the pavement marking is complete.

The safety of workers and the general public is paramount so please observe speed limits when travelling through work zones.

The works are being carried out at an estimated cost of $2.9 million as part of the Australian Government’s Periodic Road Maintenance Program.

DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out.
