Construction of the permanent roundabout and resealing of Druids Avenue is now complete.  Some final linemarking and landscaping will complete the project.

 

Druids Avenue Resealing

18 March 2015

Construction of the permanent roundabout at Druids Cameron is largely complete with final tidy up of the site remaining.

In preparation for the Druids Avenue resealing, reconstruction of kerb and guttering along the northern side has been completed and some trimming of the tree under canopy to provide a safe vehicle corridor will be undertaken.

Resealing of the section of Druids Avenue from Cameron Road to Hutchinson Street is scheduled for night work on Thursday 26 March and Friday 27 March from 7pm to 6am, subject to suitable conditions. 

This section of Druids Avenue will be temporarily closed to all traffic during night works and reopened during the day. Traffic management and detours will be in place.

Council’s Contract Supervisor, Mr Ian Powell, will be on site for the duration of the night works and can be contacted on mobile 0408 970 966 should you have any queries.

 

Progress Update

16 March 2015

Work to construct the roundabout annulus, installation of the final layer of the road pavement and line marking have been completed.  Remaining works to kerbs and footpaths will now be the focus of further day works.

 

Roundabout Annulus Construction

26 February 2015

Night works to construct the annulus of the Druids Cameron roundabout will commence from Friday 27 February 2015 from 5pm.  The contractor has indicated that night works will be undertaken as required for approximately two weeks.

During this period, the road will be re-opened to traffic during the day. 

Please note: commercial vehicles will not be able to navigate the roundabout during this period due to the construction materials on the site.

Two sections of Cameron Road will also be asphalted at night on 27 February requiring the road to be closed near the pedestrian crossing for a short period. 

 

Druids Avenue Resealing

13 February 2015

Resealing of Druids Avenue between Hutchinson Street and Cameron Road will commence on 23 February with the replacement of the kerb and guttering along the northern side of Druids Avenue. 

It is expected that this work will take two weeks to complete.  The road will remain open to two way traffic under traffic management.

Following this, the road will be resealed with asphalt, currently scheduled for night works on 26 and 27 March 2015.

 

Kerbing and Footpaths

6 February 2015

Work on the roundabout is continuing with kerbing and footpaths expected to be completed by the end of February.  It is proposed that night works will be undertaken to construct the roundabout and reconstruct the road in March.  Traffic management will remain in place.

 

Night Works 16 January

12 January 2015

Council’s contractor Camco (SA) Pty Ltd, commenced the construction of the permanent roundabout at the intersection of Druids Avenue and Cameron Road this week and have advised that night works will be undertaken from 7pm to 7am Friday 16 January to install stormwater infrastructure. 

This work will affect traffic turning left from Druids Avenue into Cameron Road.  These vehicles will be detoured through the roundabout then left through the car park road back onto Cameron Road.

All other vehicle movements including turning right from Druids Avenue to Cameron Road will not be affected.

Traffic Controllers will be on site to manage traffic flow and direct drivers but it is recommended that an alternative route is used to avoid any inconvenience.

 

Construction to Commence for Permanent Roundabout

17 November 2014

In late 2012 a temporary roundabout was installed at the intersection of Druids Avenue and Cameron Road to help facilitate traffic movements while the Morphett Hutchinson Precinct works were undertaken.  This has proven to be effective in moving the increasing number of vehicles within the town centre.

Works will now commence to install a permanent roundabout at this location.

Preliminary works will commence the week of 24 November including location of services, kerbing realignment set out, vegetation removal, site compound establishment, layout of roundabout site and surveying. While these works are underway, the temporary roundabout will remain in place.

To avoid any unnecessary disruption during the busy Christmas season, only the preliminary works will be completed.  Full construction will be undertaken from mid January to April 2015.

Following the installation of the roundabout, road resealing of Druids Avenue from Hutchinson Street to Cameron Road will be completed.

Regular Update

Regular updates on the progress of the works will be posted to Council’s website http://www.dcmtbarker.sa.gov.au.
