Wellington Road and Albert Road Roundabout
A roundabout will be constructed at the intersection of Albert Road with Wellington Road, Mount Barker.
The Peet Group, the developer of Bluestone Mount Barker, are responsible to fully fund and procure the works. As the intersection is under the care and control of the Department for Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI), DPTI will be responsible for the project management of the construction.
The Peet Group and DPTI are responsible for advising the community and affected property owners of the works and progress.
Update December 2016
The roundabout has been constructed and is in operation. A few minor completion works remain to be completed.
Update August 2016
Council has been advised that Peet Group's contractor is to commence construction in September and take approximately eight weeks to complete. During that time there will be no access to Wellington Road from Albert Road. It is expected that two way traffic along Wellington Road will be maintained under 25km/h speed limit for road works.
Update June 2016
Construction has been scheduled to start in September 2016.
Update January 2016
Initial service works were undertaken by SA Power Networks to relocate poles prior to Christmas with final undergrounding works to occur this month. The developer has advised Council that road construction works are expected to commence in late January/ early February with completion prior to Winter 2016.
Update 9 September 2015
The contractor has advised there was an onsite change to the approved traffic management plan this morning for safety reasons as they trenched across the road due to the depth of the trench and the closeness of passing traffic.
As this was in response to an on site safety issue, the contractor and DPTI, as contractor supervisor, were not able to provide any prior notice to the community.
The road is expected to be reopened by this afternoon. Full traffic controllers are now in place.
Please note: While Council requires the developer to up grade this intersection, this is not a council project or Council’s contractors.
Update 27 August
Trenching works will commence on Albert / Wellington Road intersection the week of 31 August 2015. Traffic management will be in place with two way traffic maintained.
Commencing the week of 17 August 2015, some preliminary works will be undertaken.
This will be followed by modifications to lighting and construction of the roundabout.
The preliminary program indicates that works will be completed by the end of the year.
Traffic management will be in place during the works, but delays should be anticipated and alternate routes planned. Road users cooperation in observing all posted signs for the safety of workers and the community is appreciated.
