Upgrade for Stuart Hwy line markings


Motor Accident Commission to spend $3 million on safety initiative

Upgrade for Stuart Hwy line markings
Line-markings are a safety focus

 

Line-markings on the Stuart Highway in South Australia will soon be upgraded.

The audio tactile line markings, which make noise and cause a vehicle to vibrate when tyres hit them, will come in place between Port Augusta and Marla.

The $3.05 million worth project is being funded by the Motor Accident Commission and is set to improve road safety.

There were 86 crashes recorded in the area between 2008 and 2012, causing 10 fatalities.

The works are expected to be completed by the end of August.

Speed restrictions will be in place to ensure the safety of road workers.
