Works commence on upgrade of Bute to Kulpara Road

28 January 2015

An upgrade of a major rural road connecting the upper Yorke Peninsula towns of Bute and Kulpara has begun.

A four kilometre section of the Bute to Kulpara Road, north of Kulpara, will be reconstructed in the first stage of the three-year project.

In total more than 20 kilometres of the rural arterial road will be resealed between the Copper Coast Highway and Millard Road.

The State Government is spending $1.6 million on this first stage of the Bute to Kulpara Road upgrade, and more than $9 million in total over the three-year lifetime of this project.

The result is expected to make the trip safer for the almost 500 drivers who use this road every day.

The project honours a commitment the State Government made to the Regional Development Minister and Member for Frome, Geoff Brock.

From today, the Bute to Kulpara Road will be reduced to one lane and speed limits restricted to 25kmh as a temporary seal is applied.

Weather permitting, the temporary works should be finished by June and a final seal will be applied later in the year, during warmer weather.

Road users can contact dpti.northern&westernregion@sa.gov.au or call 8648 5211 for more information.
