Mid North and Yorke Peninsula roads will receive a safety upgrade in the early months of 2016.
The Copper Coast Highway between Kadina and Paskeville has seen an almost $4 million safety upgrade begin, looking at shoulder widening and resealing.
Transport and Infrastructure Minister Stephen Mullighan said the works would improve safety and ride quality on the stretch of the highway.
“Audio tactile edge lines will be installed on the entire 17-kilometre section to create noise and vibration when a vehicle strays from the road and together with shoulder sealing, it will reduce the risk of run-off road crashes,” he said.
Works began late 2015 and will be put on hold this weekend until after Australia Day, with the Port Wakefield diversion to be in place.
Shoulder widening and pavement construction on the Copper Coast Highway should be completed by May, weather permitting, with final resealing works later this year.
The government is also calling for tenders for the upgrade of about six kilometres of the RM Williams Way between Clare and Spalding.
“The RM Williams Way was one of the first roads targeted for stimulus funding and it has also been identified by the RAA as a priority for upgrading,” Mr Mullighan said.
“The works will include shoulder widening, pavement reconstruction, resealing the full width of the road and the installation of audio tactile edge lines, which create noise and vibration when a vehicle strays from the road.
“Along with shoulder sealing, the edge lines improve safety by reducing the risk of vehicles running off the road and crashing.”
The shoulder widening and pavement reconstruction should be completed by June and the reseal and edge line works are scheduled for the third quarter of 2016.
