Works to improve the safety on four sections of the Augusta Highway will commence on Saturday, March 16. 

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) will be undertaking pavement surfacing works to improve the surface quality and extend the life of roads. 

The four locations include: 

  • Augusta Highway, approximately 6.5 kilomtres south of Port Germein for 1.6 kilometres,
  • Augusta Highway, approximately 9 kilometres south of Port Germein for 1.7 kilometres. 
  • Augusta Highway, between the northern and southern accesses to Crystal Brook for 1.8 kilometres. 
  • Augusta Highway, at the junction with Pareora Road approximately 4 kilometres north of Port Wakefield for 0.9 kilometres. 

DPTI will also be undertaking other works on the Stuart Highway. 

Work on the roads will be completed between 7am and 5.30pm Monday to Sunday, with completion expected mid May, with weather permitting. 

The road will remain open to traffic with minor lane restrictions and a 25 km/h speed restriction will apply when workers are on site, with a maximum of 80km/h speed restriction in place until the reinstatement of the pavement marking is complete. 

The safety of workers and the general public is paramount, DPTI ask that road uses observe speed limits when travelling through these zones.
