Widespread ongoing roadworks drive motorists up the wall

Limestone Coast residents are experiencing ongoing frustration and continued delays over road works taking part along a significant stretch of South East highway.

The works on Jubilee Highway are being completed as part of the Department for Infrastructure and Transport’s infrastructure upgrades on the Princes Highway Corridor from Meningie to the South Australian/Victorian border.

The project forms part of the $190m Princes Highway Corridor Upgrade program which is jointly funded by the Federal and State governments.

A Department for Infrastructure and Transport spokesperson said the works were expected to be completed in mid-2024.

“These works will improve road quality and safety and support South Australia’s regional growth with improved access for high productivity freight and improved accessibility,” the spokesperson said.

“The Princes Highway Corridor Upgrade commenced in September 2023 at the O’Leary Road Roundabout.

“Since then, works have also commenced on the Suttontown Road and Wehl Street roundabout.

“The department has completed road resurfacing works between Wehl Street North and Penola Road and further works are to come on the Penola Road roundabout and resurfacing between Suttontown Road and Wehl Street North.”

Five infrastructure upgrades have commenced near Millicent as part of the project including the upgrade and addition of overtaking lanes and intersection upgrades at the Princes Highway/Furner Road Junction and Princes Highway/Walkers Tin Hut Road Junction.
