Road Upgrades

We are upgrading roads on Kangaroo Island so that tourists, locals, freight and emergency services vehicles can move around quicker and safer.

What we've done

The Marshall Liberal Government is investing $40 million in Kangaroo Island Road upgrades, including upgrading the Playford Highway (west of Kingscote) and Hogs Bay Road.

These road upgrades will make it safer for tourists and locals, enhance bushfire resilience and improve freight access to and from the Island.

Unlike the former labor government who preferred to pick fights with Canberra, we have been working closely with the Federal Government to secure a funding contribution for this project and many others across the state over the past four years.

These projects are part of our record $17.9 billion Building What Matters infrastructure program which is creating thousands of jobs and improving the lives of South Australians.

What it means for you

  • Getting tourists and locals where they want to go quicker and safer
