Motorists will now have a smoother and safer journey in Victor Harbor with the completion of a new major roundabout.
With around 23,000 vehicle movements through Torrens Street, Crozier Road intersection each day, it has been the site of several accidents in recent years, including four casualty crashes and eight right-angle collisions between 2013 and 2017.
The state government has invested $2.3 million in the new roundabout, the modification of existing kerb and gutter and footpaths, installation of LED lighting, new road construction and resurfacing, pedestrian refuges, and line marking.
Member for Finniss, David Basham, said the project is the Marshall Government's largest election commitment for his electorate to be completed.
“It will assist in addressing crashes and improving overall motorist and pedestrian safety, while also improving traffic flow at this busy intersection," said Mr Basham.
“The project has also provided an economic boost for the region with local business Coastal Landscape and Fencing contracted in the build.”
