Following the completion of the ‘missing link’ on the Yorke and Copper Coast Highways, it is hoped to see a boost in freight productivity.
The upgrade was apart of a $40 million Upper Yorke Peninsula regional road network upgrade package and will now enable 36.5 metre road train vehicles to travel from Adrossan to Port Wakefield, which gives them access to the Yorke Highway.
Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government, Stephen Knoll says the completion of the works will make freight movements more efficient and productive on the Yorke Peninsula.
“These upgrade works to the Yorke and Copper Coast highways effectively removes the ‘missing link’ in the restricted access vehicle network.”
“The State Liberal Government will continue to invest in our regional road network to improve safety and efficiency for motorists, freight and agriculture vehicles.”
The local member for Narungga Fraser Ellis welcomed the announcement, saying it would improve productivity for farmers on the peninsula.
“Farmers on the Yorke Peninsula will be delighted that 36.5 metre road trains can now travel down the Yorke Highway, making freight more efficient and lowering costs for our farmers.”
“Through the State Liberal Government’s Royalties for Regions program, I am confident that we will be able to better maintain and upgrade the road network on the Yorke Peninsula, which is vital for locals, industry and tourism.”
