Motorists are advised that a new red light and speed camera will be activated at the Globe Derby Drive/Port Wakefield Road intersection, Globe Derby Park, on Wednesday, 8 January.
The camera, which will monitor northbound traffic, forms part of the State Government’s commitment to install 10 new red light and speed cameras at high-priority locations, which were reviewed as part of the 2018 Speed Camera Audit.
Nine of these 10 cameras were installed in 2019 and they have now all been switched on.
A tenth camera will be installed at the pedestrian crossing on Goodwood Road near the Daws Road/Goodwood Road/Springbank Road intersection, once the project to realign this intersection has been completed.
Each new camera has been accompanied by new “red light and speed camera ahead” signs, as part of the government’s roll-out of larger signage to ensure greater awareness of fixed camera locations.
The Speed Camera Audit report is available at www.dpti.sa.gov.au/towardszerotogether/safer_speeds/Speed_Camera_Audit.
Further information about speed camera locations and the camera site selection process can be found at www.speedcameras.sa.gov.au.
All remaining cars fitted with a critical defective Takata type airbag inflator will now be refused registration in South Australia from Monday, 10 August until they are rectified, to ensure the safety of all road users.
As the popularity of electric and hybrid vehicles grows, DPTI reminds potential traders and buyers of the requirement to fix a safety label onto their numberplates.
Works to improve ride quality will be undertaken on McIntyre Road between The Golden Way and Wright Road, commencing each night from 7pm, Tuesday, 18 February to 6am, Friday, 6 March, weather permitting.
The South Australian Government is delivering $7.39 million worth of essential resurfacing works to five sections of the South Eastern Freeway between Mount Barker and Callington, with night works beginning this week.
