In May 2022, temporary traffic barriers were installed along the eastern edge of Victor Harbor Road between Main South Road and McLaren Vale to ensure the safety of workers and road users and to allow traffic to continue to flow during construction.
With the barriers now installed, the majority of works will be constructed ‘offline’ behind the protection of temporary traffic barriers.
Major works are accelerating on the Victor Harbor duplication with the aim to improve road safety and reduce travel times.
Construction of the new lanes of Victor Harbor Road (between Main South Road and McLaren Vale) commenced after the installation of temporary traffic barriers in May 2022. The new carriageway is being constructed alongside the existing road, behind the barriers.
Wood from the Main South Road and Victor Harbor Road duplication projects are being reused by locals for artistic and environmental benefit
