There two types of roads in the district – Council owned roads and the main roads that are owned and managed by the state government Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI).
Council only has authority to install or modify signage on Council roads. This excludes speed limit signage which is the responsibility of DPTI.
Main roads that run between and through townships such as Onkaparinga Valley Rd, Strathalbyn Rd, Woodside Road, Torrens Valley Rd, Greenhill Rd are DPTI roads. For requests for new or modification to signage on these roads please contact DPTI.
Council assesses requests in line with the Australian Standards AS 1742 for signage to ensure they meet the criteria. Existing signage in the area is also considered.
