Council undertakes a Sealed Roads Works Program throughout the district each year. The list of roads will be updated as the program progresses.

The Mount Barker District Council has a total road network of approximately 805km. This increases every year and consists of approximately 351km of sealed roads, approximately 389km of formed and surfaced roads and approximately 65km of unformed roads.

Council is committed to maintaining all roads in good condition to provide a safe environment with a number of streets and roads scheduled for maintenance during the course of the financial year.   

Works can include tree pruning or removal, drainage improvements and pavement rehabilitation.  Marks may be painted on the road indicating start and finishing points.  Some roads will also have concrete works completed including replacement of kerb and gutter, driveway crossings and spoon drains.

The work will necessitate closing sections of the road for a period of time on the day that construction is undertaken.  During this time there may be limited access to driveway entrances and vehicles should not be left parked on the road.

All endeavours will be made to ensure a minimum of inconvenience, but alternative routes should be planned while these works are under way.  Road users are requested to adhere to any detours that will be in place and plan alternate routes to avoid delay in reaching their destination.

Although work is avoided on the same day as the kerbside bin collection, please ensure bins are out by 6.30am as in most cases these will be emptied before work commences. 

Council endeavours to complete the Sealed Road Works Program within the indicated year, however the program can be subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances. If this occurs the affected segment will be scheduled in a future works program.

 

June 2018

Update - due to wet weather, work is now expected to be complete by 20 June.

January/February 2018

Frampton Road

Commencement of the works has been delayed due to the lengthy wait to obtain a Network Access Permit from South Australian Power Networks (SAPN) to enable council to excavate around their infrastructure and install drainage pipes.  This is a precursor to road pavement rehabilitation.  It is envisaged that works will be able to recommence from mid-January and be completed in February 2018.

 

Native Avenue

Commencement of the road rehabilitation works has been delayed due to the availability of contract resources and materials.  It is envisaged that works will be able to recommence from mid-January and be completed in February 2018.

 

December 2017

Paech Brothers Road

Construction and bitumen sealing of Paech Brothers Road, Hahndorf – between Balhannah Rd and Ravenswood Lane will commence with tree and roadside vegetation pruning, possible tree removal and drainage improvements in late November and it is envisaged that they will be completed prior to Christmas.

The Road Reconstruction will commence early January and the Bitumen sealing will be carried out in February subject the Bitumen contractor’s availability.

 

November 2017

River Road

On November 9 and 10, line marking will be undertaken on River Road between the hours of 9am and 3pm, between Fairview Road and Kangaroo Reef Road.

As this road has many curves and moderately high traffic for a rural environment, the road will be intermittently closed to facilitate line marking works.

Intermittent closing will involve progressively closing sections of the road for between 10-20 minutes. The road will then be opened to enable the passage of vehicles travelling on this road free of road works.  This approach ensures safety of both road users and Council’s contract staff.
