Stoney Pinch have been committed to building and improving the Adelaide and surrounding area road networks for many years. Our experienced team are highly skilled in road construction and maintenance and we have long lasting partnerships with subcontractors. We are committed to safety on each and every project we undertake. We are dedicated to improving the safety of our team, our partners and road users alike, by addressing known and potential black spots on road networks throughout South Australia.
We have been lucky enough to work on problematic hotspots around the state, including intersections, run offs, remedial works after head on collisions ensuring signage improvements as well as reducing the surface degradation. We also consult on black spots that have been identified by the State Government as needing upgrades. Whether that is skid resistance of the road surface, relocation of roadside hazards, among a swathe of other options to improve road safety for all users of the South Australian road networks.
It is our job to also look to the shoulders of the road network for objects that could cause a serious incident if stuck with a vehicle at speed. Whether this is the placement of trees, rocks, traffic signals and power poles. We have had to relocate a number of different objects over the years to improve the safety of South Australian drivers. Our best practice approach means we remove and relocate obstacles like trees and rocks to a more suitable area; where we cannot remove the obstacle, we install the appropriate safety barrier instead. All of this to ensure Adelaide drivers make it home safely, every time they get into a vehicle.
As your local road construction professionals, we have safety at the forefront of our minds. Whether it is ensuring the machinery is operated safely, or that traffic is managed in a safe way for both road workers and users. So what behaviour is best for when you’re travelling through road works?
First things first, we need drivers to pay attention to the changes in speed conditions and take note of the road work signage. This small change in behaviour means everyone on site, and on the road, has a better chance of getting home safely and without too much delay. Always keep an eye out for roadworkers, some may be slightly hidden, and for vehicles which are looking to enter or exit the work site, these may not always be obvious, so it is always a good idea to keep an eye out.
We always see cars weaving in and out of lanes, trying to get to their destination faster. We promise to have you on your way in no time, if you can just stay in your chosen lane until clear of the works. Also, space is a big problem in roadworks, so leave enough space between you and other vehicles, as well as the works and workers alike. Most importantly we ask that you are patient with us, we are trying to build a safer road network for everyone’s benefit.
