In November 2015, the Mount Barker District Council created a new program using its funding allocation from the Australian Government’s Roads to Recovery program, aimed at sealing approximately 8.2km of unsealed roads within various townships in the district by June 2019.

The Council’s Township Sealing Program for 2018/19 includes the rehabilitation and sealing of nominated roads in:

  • Echunga – East Street
  • Macclesfield – Watson Street, Wirrinilla Drive, Edmonds Street, Cunliffe Street, Dyer Road
  • Littlehampton – Rosella Court
  • Nairne – Nixon Street (From Bassett St to Ford Crossing), Church Street

Preliminary works will be undertaken such as tree pruning, geotechnical investigations and surveying prior to civil works commencing. 

The construction program is expected to start Mid-November and be completed by the end of February 2019. There may be intermittent disruption to driveway access during construction works.  All reasonable measures will be taken to maintain access where possible.
