Council is undertaking the stage upgrade of Springs Road Mount Barker, from Dutton Road to Bald Hills Road.

March 2019 - Stage 2 - to Commence mid-March

Council is currently part way through a staged upgrade of approximately 2.2km of Springs Road, Mount Barker, from Dutton Road to Bald Hills Road. The intention of the project is to widen the roadway, replace failing pavements, improve drainage, and ultimately improve road safety along this key transport link. Works are being done progressively over several years, subject to availability of funding from the Federal Government.

At the meeting held on 4 March, Council resolved to award the tender for Stage 2.  Council’s contractors have advised that construction of Stage 2 will commence in mid-March 2019 and should be completed by May 2019, subject to weather and other circumstances.

Stage 2 of the project includes approximately 450m of road, from Waterford Avenue to Burnbank Way. A short length of roadway, at the junction of the access road that serves Council’s wastewater treatment plant and new Environmental Services Centre and St Francis de Sales College, will be excluded from Stage 2 due to ongoing construction activity on these sites.

Traffic restrictions will be in place while construction is undertaken, and alternate routes should be taken where practical. Council’s contractors will liaise with residents where their driveway access will be directly affected by the works, and will endeavour to ensure a minimum of inconvenience.

Should you require any further information or have any queries as works progress, please contact me on telephone 8391 7259 or via email at dhutchinson@mountbarker.sa.gov.au.

Your cooperation in delivering the successful completion of this project for the community is appreciated.
