Road Maintenance Backlog

Tuesday 09 May, 2023

The $15.4 billion upgrade of the River Torrens to Darlington project is one of the most important projects in our state currently and it’s imperative that it gets delivered on time and budget. But it shouldn’t come at the expense of other key upgrades and road maintenance. South Australia’s road maintenance backlog is set to top $2 billion in the next few years, with thousands of kilometres of our road network in need of repair. It’s critical for money to be budgeted to keep our roads in good condition, otherwise they become a safety risk. We’re putting pressure on the government to do exactly that.
