Sims Road Temporary Closure from 17 September 2018

Council will be temporarily closing the section of Sims Road between Paech Road and Heysen Boulevard commencing 17 September 2018 due to the following reasons:

  • This cut through road is encouraging illegal driving at the intersection of Sims Road and Heysen Boulevard including driving on the opposite side of the road and also over top of medians and kerbs.
  • The increased traffic volumes accessing development sites has greatly increased the deterioration of the previously quiet rural road.
  • Ongoing dust and nuisance complaints from the residents adjacent this section of road.
  • There is no longer a need for vehicles to use this road as the main route is Paech Road and the Heysen Boulevard now that the Heysen Boulevard has been constructed.


Driveway access will still be maintained for residents fronting this section of road.


Further to this temporary closure, Council will be consulting the community on the permanent road closure of this section of Sims Road.


Should you have any queries regarding the temporary closure, please contact Mitchell Bowley, Development Engineer, on telephone 8391 7293.
