Black Spot works

19 February 2015

Works to address three black spots in the Fleurieu Peninsula, Murray Mallee and Adelaide Hills have started.

The $1.37 million works, funded by the State Government’s Black Spot Program, will improve the Blackwood to Goolwa Road, Meadows to Willunga Road and Mannum to Murray Bridge Road.

On the Fleurieu Peninsula, the Blackwood to Goolwa Road project will see construction of a dedicated north-bound left-turn lane for traffic turning into Nangkita Road and the installation 300 metres of safety barrier. Furthermore, a 260 metre section of road will be widened for south-bound vehicles to safely pass a stationary vehicle turning right into Nangkita Road. Since 2008 there have been four recorded casualty crashes at this location.

In the Adelaide Hills, Meadows to Willunga Road will have three kilometres of shoulder sealing completed and 300 metres of safety barrier installed near Blackfellows Creek, Kuitpo.

In the Murray Mallee, nine new impact-absorbing, LED street lights will be installed at the intersection of Nilpena Road and Bigmore Road near Murray Bridge.

Construction will take place on all three projects between 7.00 am to 5.00 pm on weekdays, with works expected to be completed by April, weather permitting.

The roads will remain open to traffic with minor lane restrictions in place while the works are being undertaken. Every effort will be made to minimise the impact on road users during construction hours. There will be a 25 km/h speed restriction when workers are on site.
