The Marshall Liberal government has committed a further $2.8 million to upgrade three key intersections and roads on the Fleurieu Peninsula.
The safety of the Port Elliot and Boettcher Rd intersection at Middleton will be upgraded creating a staggered T junction with a dedicated left hand turn lane and splitter island.
With cars and trucks left vulnerable when turning off the Victor Harbor Rd at Arthur Rd in Mt Compass, a right hand turn lane will be installed while the stretch of Victor Harbor Rd between Quarry and Main Rd from Noarlunga to Willunga will be resurfaced.
“The Marshall Government is continuing to upgrade regional roads around South Australia, including up and down the Fleurieu Peninsula." said Minister for Transport Stephen Knoll.
“By investing in these roads and intersections, we’re making them safer for locals and tourists alike."
“Aside from improving safety, these intersection upgrades will help to cut travel times and ease congestion."
“That’s why the Marshall Government is investing another $2.8 million to upgrade these roads and intersections on the Fleurieu Peninsula.”
Member for Finniss David Basham has welcomed the investment.
“The intersection projects at Mount Compass and Middleton are very welcome, and they underline the benefits to our electorate of having a State Government which makes regional roads a priority."
“They will improve safety and ease traffic congestion on key road routes in the region, especially at peak holiday periods."
“I was pleased to host the Minister on a recent visit to our region, during which we discussed some immediate and more long-term road and infrastructure projects. It was great to see the Minister take a strong interest in our current and future transport needs, and I’m confident that with the $750 million Royalties for Regions program we’ll see more projects in Finniss.”
