18 kilometres of road resurfacing works on Barrier Highway will commence on Tuesday, 24 January 2017 to improve safety.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) is undertaking reseal works at the following locations:
The works will improve the surface quality and extend the life of the roads.
The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm each day of the week, weather permitting.
DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during construction hours, with the road remaining open to traffic with minor lane restrictions in place while the works are being undertaken.
DPTI advises a 25 km/h speed restriction applies when workers are on site, with a maximum 80km/h speed restriction being in place until the reinstatement of the pavement marking is complete.
These works, including all pavement marking, are expected to be completed by March 2017, weather permitting.
The works are being carried out at an estimated cost of $600 000 as part of the State Government’s Periodic Road Maintenance Program.
DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out.
As the weather starts to warm up across South Australia, grain harvest gets underway across our grain growing regions.
The South Australian Government is developing a new strategy for the next ten years: South Australia’s Road Safety Strategy to 2031.
As part of the Darlington Upgrade Project, night and weekend works will be undertaken in the lowered motorway and on South Road to install the final layer of asphalt and line marking.
Motorists are advised of upcoming partial closures of the Heysen Tunnels to allow for essential safety maintenance works.
