South Australia is set to see hundreds of jobs created as the state government works to improve road safety through several significant projects worth around $233 million in contracts.

A total of 19 contracts have been awarded during January as the government invests in metropolitan and regional road upgrades from the South Eastern Freeway to Ceduna.

One of the many projects includes marine infrastructure around SA with Cape Jarvis expected to be upgraded as a part of a $22 million dollar program that will create 80 jobs.

Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Corey Wingard, said the Marshall Government was committed to boosting jobs, business and infrastructure.

He says “South Australia is facing its most challenging economic period in living memory and investing in projects that will get people into jobs sooner will keep our economy firing during this extremely difficult time.
