A $600,000 South Australian Government-funded project to upgrade the junction of Arthur Road and Victor Harbor Road, in Mount Compass, is set to start on Monday.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) will commence works on Monday, 1 April, with the upgrade expected to be completed in mid-June, weather permitting.
The upgrade includes installation of a sheltered right turn lane on Victor Harbor Road for right turn movements into Arthur Road.
The current bus shelter will be temporarily relocated from the western side of Victor Harbor Road to Peters Terrace during construction.
There will be no access to or from Arthur Road at Victor Harbor Road while the works are undertaken, and signed detours will be in place via Tay Road, Slater Avenue and Arthur Road.
School Road will remain open.
To minimise traffic impacts, the works will occur between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
A 25 km/h speed restriction will apply to Victor Harbor Road while the roadworks are occurring.
Road users are asked to use extra caution when workers are on site.
The department will make every effort to minimise impacts and will ensure that access to businesses and properties is maintained throughout the works.
The department appreciates your patience while these important 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.
Works to upgrade the intersection of Cross Road, Duthy Street and Harrow Terrace, Kingswood will occur this weekend; Saturday and Sunday, 20 and 21 April.
New traffic lights and more right-hand turn lanes will be added to the junction of Bridge Road and Maxwell Road, in Para Hills, as part of a $7.23 million safety upgrade set to commence on Sunday.
