New signage to help keep cyclists safe on Norton Summit Rd

This is really great news from DPTI, Nine of these signs are coming soon along Norton Summit Road between Magill Road and Stony Rise Road/Monomeith Road at Ashton. They aim to serve a timely and visual reminder along this popular cycling route.

Let's hope they make a difference. For me the bit of road between the pub at Norton Summit and Woods Hill Rd has become much more dangerous despite the reduction in speed limit. There has been many times I've see police monitoring speeds near the primary school but I suspect locals might be getting the message but irregular users are not.

Great News! I hope they put some signs around the Woods Hill Road exit, Ive had and seen a lot of near misses at that section.

Looks like South Australia is only just catching on to what our cousins in NZ have been doing for a long time.

Please make sure the signs do not block out other signs (whether regulatory, advisory or even street signs) or degrade sight lines for curves and driveways.

The last thing we need is for the attempt to improve on one problem to be the cause of another two or three.

I saw some of these between Ashton and Norton Summit today. They're pretty good actually! Seemed to be placed a bit before twistier sections and away from other signs.
