Motorists will face changed traffic conditions on the Princes Highway at Dignams Creek over the next month due to road resurfacing.

About 1.5 kilometres of the highway south of Dignams Creek Road will be resurfaced to improve safety for drivers as part of a $45 million upgrade.

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) say work will be carried out between 7am and 6pm on weekdays from Wednesday, February 13, to Friday, March 8. Work hours will be extended to 9pm on weekdays from Monday, February 18.

Stop/slow traffic control and temporary traffic lights will be in place during work hours, as well as a reduced speed limit of 40 kilometres per hour.

The RMS urged motorists to keep to the speed limit, follow the directions of signs and traffic control, and allow up to five minutes additional travel time during the work.
