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.

To facilitate large machinery and to complete the works in the shortest period possible, Pyrites Road will temporarily be closed to all vehicles (except adjacent property owners) from 29 July to 9 August between the hours of 7am to 5pm. 

Detours will be in place via Old Princes Hwy and Dawesley Road during this period and traffic control will also be in place on adjacent roads.  Road users are requested to adhere to the detours that will be in place and plan alternate routes to avoid delay in reaching their destination.

 

July 2019

Nicholas Paech Drive, Hahndorf – Completion of Road Resurfacing Works, requiring trimming of nature strip trees

Council has recently repaired subsided pavers at the entrance to Nicholas Paech Drive, as well as replaced failed sections of kerbing and resurfacing the failed section of asphalt on the corner of the Drive.

Road surfacing of the remainder of the road is needed to complete the maintenance program. This involves renewal of the road’s asphalt overlay.  

As part of asphalt resurfacing works, trees need to be trimmed to a height of approximately 3 metres vertically at the kerb.

It is planned to undertake trimming of all remaining trees on the road to facilitate asphalt road works. This means that the trees would look similar to the existing trimmed trees on the corner.

Trimming of the tress is an Occupational Safety requirement to facilitate a safe work environment during roads resurfacing works. In addition, trimming of the trees facilitates full road width usage.
