Consultation has closed.

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback. We're now reviewing all feedback and will return to the community soon.

Background

We are planning to reconstruct and install flood protection to a section of Pethick Road in McLaren Vale.

Pethick road is constructed across a large swamp which has a large rural catchment of over 25km squared. The road is regularly flooded creating inconveniences to commuters.

The adjacent vineyard to the swamp also spends some time under water due to a combination of the slightly elevated road across the swamp and the heavy vegetation build-up in the swamp. The causes water to stagnate and reduces water movement down stream.

During construction the road will be closed

The project aims to:

  • Reduce the flooding of the road
  • Address local issues that the road’s crown is too high, impeding the water flow crossing over the road resulting vineyard flooding
  • Provide safety for road users

Feedback

We welcomed feedback and/or local knowledge on the Concept Plan and are now reviewing feedback.

We will keep this page updated as the project progresses and notify residents, businesses and commuters prior to any work commencing.
