Dukes Highway work at Tintinara


South Australia road safety program to see old pine trees close to road cleared

May 11, 2012

Drivers and trucking firms using South Australia’s Dukes Highway may have to factor in minor delays at Tintinara as 350 roadside pine trees are removed.

The works, between the Tintinara township and three kilometres east to the Tintinara rail overpass, are part of a program of safety measures being undertaken to reduce crashes on the Dukes Highway, the SA Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure says.

It advises drivers that speed restrictions will apply from early next week while the work is undertaken and lane restrictions may also be put in place when required.

The works are expected to take approximately two weeks to complete, weather permitting.

These works form part of the Federal and State Government’s joint $100 million investment in road safety and efficiency measures over six years on the Adelaide to Melbourne road corridor.
