Trail to regional sports hub
Mount Barker District Council have engaged SADB to construct the Regional Sports Hub Trail from the Laratinga Wetland car park on Bald Hills Road through to the new Regional Sports Hub.
Construction commenced on 4 November 2020. A key part of the project is to formalize a pedestrian underpass beneath Bald Hills Road utilizing a box culvert previously installed by Council in preparation for these works.
Preliminary work on the project has included constructing a coffer dam to aid the removal of water from the work site so that the pedestrian underpass can be constructed.
The contractor has also worked closely with Council’s arborist to minimize the impact on trees in the area which has resulted in minor civil and structural redesign to provide additional protection for the trees.
Between Bald Hills Road and the Regional Sports Hub, construction of the 550 metre long, 3 metre wide asphalt shared path has commenced with clearing of topsoil having commenced on the path alignment. Works are programmed to be completed by the end of 2020.
