Victor Harbor is South Australia’s most popular seaside town, located on the Fleurieu Peninsula of South Australia, 80km south of Adelaide CBD. With approximately 15,000 permanent residents and annual visitor numbers of 1,248,000* significantly increases the number of vehicles utilising roads throughout the area.
- The intersection of Swains Crossing Rd and Pages Rd, Victor Harbor is between a Y intersection in both directions which, given poor lighting makes it difficult to gauge approaching traffic.
- The intersection / crossing is a ‘blind corner’ with the darkness further reducing visibility at night, making it difficult to see and judge the speed of on-coming traffic.
- Multiple serious accidents have occurred on this section of road, too many of these resulting in fatalities.
