The DPTI said today:-
Safety on roads in the Limestone Coast area will be improved with more than 17 kilometres of roads to be resurfaced commencing on Wednesday, 12 January 2015.
The $1,316,000 resealing works will extend the life of these roads and are expected be complete by the middle of February, weather permitting.
The work will be undertaken between 7.00 am and 5.30 pm, each day of the week.
DPTI workers will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users during construction hours, with the road remaining open to traffic with minor lane restrictions in place while the works are being undertaken.
During this time a 25 km/h speed restriction will apply when workers are on site, with an 80km/h speed restriction being in place until the reinstatement of the pavement marking is complete.

– Riddoch Highway, approximately 5 kilometres south of Tarpeena for 2.5 kilometres
– Bordertown to Naracoorte Road, approximately 2 kilometres south of Bordertown for 470 metres
– Wimmera Highway, approximately 4 kilometres east of Naracoorte for 2.6 kilometres
– Princes Highway, approximately 4 kilometres east of Mount Gambier for 800 metres
