'No stopping zones' for Jubilee Highway East

The no stopping zones will apply on Jubilee Highway East (northern half) 78 metres west and 66 metres east of the Attamurra Road intersection.

City of Mount Gambier will install no stopping zones on the north side of Jubilee Highway East on either side of the Attamurra Road intersection to improve traffic safety.

The decision was made at the Council meeting last night, following a report to Council and complaints from motorists regarding restricted sight distance for vehicles leaving Attamurra Road due to trucks and caravans parking along the roadway to go to the McDonald’s restaurant.

Semi-trailers and caravans are parking opposite McDonald’s and west of Attamurra Road which makes it very difficult for other motorists to see past them as they enter the intersection or leave the McDonald’s car park.
- City Infrastructure General Manager Nick Serle.

“Whilst Jubilee Highway is a Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) road, Council is responsible for the implementation and establishment of parking restrictions on DPTI roads. Council has consulted with the department on this matter and DPTI supported Council’s recommendation to implement parking restrictions along Jubliee Highway to establish safe intersection sight lines.”

The no stopping zones will be effective following the installation of signage which is expected to occur within the coming weeks.

Council also resolved to write to DPTI to request that it maintains the section of road to the east of Jubilee Highway East, Attamurra Road that has been damaged due to trucks parking on it.
