Council undertakes a program of road resurfacing throughout the district each year. The list of roads will be updated as the program progresses.

The Mount Barker District Council is committed to maintaining roads in good condition to provide a safe environment.  Over the financial year, a number of streets and roads are scheduled to be resurfaced. 

Marks will 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 underway.  Road users are requested to adhere to any detours that will be in place.

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.
