Harrogate Road is scheduled for sealing this financial year.  GHD (a design firm from Adelaide) will have sub-contractors on site the week beginning 19/10/2020 to begin investigations for the final design.  While driving along the road, please be mindful of speed restrictions that are in place to keep the work crews safe.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and compliance to imposed speed restrictions.

April 2020

Road sealing works are set to begin from Monday 6 April 2020 on Daddow Road. Preliminary works such as driveway crossings and drainage will precede the pavement works.  Sealing works are now schedule to commence the week of 4 May due to the current wet weather not being suitable for the sealing materials.

March 2020

Roads to Recovery funded works for the Township Sealing Program are scheduled to begin Mid-April commencing with Daddow Road and Hart Road. As the weather is now beginning to turn this may affect the program pushing dates back. Works currently scheduled for completion for the end of 2019/20 financial year.

Background

In November 2015, the Mount Barker District Council created a new program using its funding allocation from the Australian Government’s Roads to Recovery program, aimed at sealing unsealed roads within various townships in the district.

Preliminary works will be undertaken such as geotechnical investigations and feature surveying prior to civil works commencing.  Tree pruning will also be undertaken to facilitate construction and provide a clear vehicle pathway.
