Works to replace the asphalt surface on worn and popular roads in the Pirie CBD will commence on Sunday January 20. 

Florence Street between Alexander and David Street, David Street between Florence Street and Ellen Street and the Road Safety Centre on Gertrude Street will all be receiving a new surface. 

Top Coat Asphalt have been contracted to complete the works and it will involve removing the existing asphalt and placing a new layer of asphalt across the full width of roads. 

The Port Pirie Regional Council says the works are expected to be completed within a week, subject to weather conditions.

The resurface is costing council $200,000, with $130,000 being spent on Florence Street as apart of the Stage 2 upgrades and $70,000 on David Street. 

During this time traffic diversions will be in place and while these works are underway, the council ask that vehicles obey the signed speed limits for the safety of the construction team and other motorists.
