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.
