Road Reconstruction and Upgrade - Justs Road Aldinga Beach/Sellicks Beach

LATEST UPDATE

Work is progressing well on Stage two (Button Road to Sellicks Beach Road) and we are on track for completion by August 2020, subject to favourable weather conditions.

Through March, profiling works were undertaken and the road pavement is now nearly complete for the 500m rural road segment from Button Road. We will finish this segment and have the road spray-sealed before the Easter break.

Works have continued on the main drainage pipe-run beyond the rural segment into the urban road area with the pipe run now approaching Tangier Boulevard.

Over the next month efforts will be focused on continuing the pipe run up Beyond Monaco Blvd and constructing the new bus stops on the eastern side of the road before we can commence the new kerb construction.

The road will continue to be open for traffic through this period with some further changing restrictions applied as required.


PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Justs Road reconstruction is being constructed in two stages to ensure as minimal impact to the community as possible. Stage One, from Norman Rd to Button Rd and Stage two from Button Road to Sellicks Beach Road (excluding the Sellicks Beach intersection).

Stage 1 - Norman road to Button Road was completed in December 2019.

Stage 2 - Button Road to Sellicks Beach Road commenced on 20 January 2020.

The reconstruction work consists of:

  • Widening the existing traffic lanes to 3.5m in each direction with new pavement installed.
  • Modifying driveways with shallow culverts underneath for stormwater.
  • Realigning the grassed drainage swales on both sides of the road.
  • Guard rail installations at selected locations.
  • Widening the road shoulders to improve the bus waiting area at bus stop 131 on both the east and west sides.

  • February Update

    7 days ago

    There was a slight delay on the road profiling due to our team encountering soft soil. This will result in the road being closed for an extra day. The road was closed on Tuesday 17 March, Wednesday 18 March and Thursday 19 March. On site signage and speed restrictions were in place and a map was provided to show the road closure location.

    Work progressed well on Stage two (Button Road to Sellicks Beach Road) and we are on track for completion by August 2020, subject to favourable weather conditions.

    Through early February, SA Water contractors were relocated a segment of the water main to accommodate new drainage infrastructure being installed as part of the road reconstruction.

    Drainage swale work has progressed with the majority of the rural road driveway crossings completed. New drainage pipework has now commenced. Drainage is one of the first important steps in all road reconstructions.

  • September 2019 Update

    6 months ago

    To reduce community impacts, the construction methodology for Stage 1 of Justs Road was changed from a full road closure to a part road closure.

    This has meant that work to reconstruct this section will be extended until the end of the year.
