Council continues to improve local roads

The City of Whyalla is continuing to make improvements to the city’s roads with increased safety measures being initiated in a number of residential areas.

Following recent road resurfacing programs, the City of Whyalla is working to reinstate and install traffic control devices.

The council will reinstate or install traffic control devices by erecting stop or give way line-marking and signage in a number of residential streets that were recently resurfaced.

The signage and line-marking will take place in 18 streets the Whyalla Stuart and Whyalla Norrie areas.

These streets will include Aikman Court, Colin Street, Cowled Street, Davison Street, George Avenue, Gordon Street, Kayser Street, Kinnane Street, Sugg Street, Ebert Street, Dowd Street, Gregor Street, Hobbs Street, Garwood Street, Sims Street, Benier Street, Brodie Street and Clee Street.

City of Whyalla manager transport Wayne Wong said the council was constantly working to improve the safety of local roads.

“Safety is one of the council’s values as outlined in our Strategic Plan,” Mr Wong said.

“It is our responsibility to do everything possible to safeguard road safety to all road-users.”

Stop or give way signs are used to control intersections by allocating priority to traffic.

Give way signs should be used at unsignalised T-intersections whereas stop signs should be provided where sight distance is obstructed by trees or properties.
