Roadworks and Road Closures
Council is committed to providing the best local road network possible, with minimal disruptions to drivers and residents. Roads may be closed, or have traffic diversions put in place, in order to upgrade roads, kerbs and footpaths. Dates are provisional and subject to change. Line marking on roads is generally scheduled for two weeks after a road has been resealed, so that the road surface has time to cure, before the lines are painted.

*Please note the dates listed are estimates and my vary depending on weather and third-party availability.

Due to essential stormwater drainage works for the Riverview development, there will be traffic restrictions in place that require single lane (contra flow) movements on Heaslip Road, between Woodbridge Drive and Gawler River - see Traffic Management Plans. The works will commence on 9 April 2019 with an expected completion date of 15 April 2019.

Stebonheath Road, north of Fradd Road East, will have traffic management in place between 5 September and 19 September 2019, while water and stormwater works are carried out. Works which may require traffic to stop or slow will take place between 7am and 4pm weekdays and speed restrictions will remain in place overnight.
Please be advised that due to the current weather conditions works have been delayed and the proposed opening of Stebonheath Rd between Petherton Rd and Torrens St will be delayed to close of business Tuesday 14 January. The road closure and detour will stay in place until this time.
Due to the excessive heat the planned works have not been able to be completed in Stebonheath Rd resulting in the extended road closure.
We appreciate your patience and understanding through this process and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
