Jury Road Upgrade Project update
The $1.5M project is being delivered by local business Scherer Contractors and is partially funded through the Federal Government’s Special Local Roads Program (SLRP).
These works include widening the road and shoulders to increase safety on the B-double route on Jury Road, from the Old Sturt Highway to McKay Road. Berri Barmera Council’s Manager Infrastructure Services Dave Otto de Grancy advised that “Commuters would have seen the signs up over the past couple of weeks as Scherer’s commenced setting out for the project. Now that machinery works have commenced, there will be speed restrictions in place for the remainder of the project and people are advised to ensure they leave enough travel time to compensate for the lower speed limits”.
Scherer Contractors Managing Director Mike Dyer added “We will attempt to avoid full road closures where possible, this may mean traffic will often be down to a single lane which will cause delays. Please stick to the limits as this ensures the safety of our workers while on the job”.
Mayor Peter Hunt said “It is great to see this major road project kicking off. It has taken a lot of planning in the preliminary stages and the outcome will see improved safety for users of the road and provide an updated asset for years to come”.

The project is expected to be completed early in the New Year.
