South Australian Regional Bridge Upgrades, Early Works Notification - Mylor
The Department for Infrastructure and Transport (the Department) is upgrading a series of bridges and culverts across regional South Australia to extend the service life of the structures and improve safety for road users.
As part of this program, the Department is replacing the bridge at Aldgate Creek and the culvert over Leslie Creek on Strathalbyn Road, Mylor.
Works for the Aldgate Creek bridge are jointly funded by the Australian and South Australian governments as part of the Bridges Renewal Program. Works for the culvert at Leslie Creek are funded by the South Australian Government as part of the Bridge Stimulus Package.
Major works at both locations are scheduled to commence from Friday, 16 Friday 2022, with project completion expected in early 2023, weather permitting. Works will involve:
- replacing the existing bridge and the culvert with wider structures;
- installing new safety barrier and bridge barriers; and
- installing new footpaths.
Works will be undertaken between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Fridays and between 7am and 3pm on Saturdays. If night works are required, advance notice will be provided to residents in the vicinity of the works.
To safely facilitate these works, Strathalbyn Road will be reduced to a single lane of traffic with temporary traffic signals to control the direction of traffic. Speed restrictions will be in place throughout the work area for the duration of the works. Please see map for traffic management details.
Road users are asked to please plan ahead, allow extra travel time and take extra care when workers are on site. Observe speed limits, lane restrictions and traffic controllers when travelling through the area.
Access from Stock Road onto Strathalbyn Road will be maintained at all times. Temporary traffic signals and speed restrictions will be in place approaching Strathalbyn Road for the duration of the project.
Access for emergency service vehicles and public transport will be maintained at all times during the works. Access to properties will be maintained throughout the works wherever possible, with advance notice provided if there is a need to temporarily restrict driveway access.
Some temporary pedestrian detours will be in place around the work sites and pedestrians are advised to follow directional signage. Every effort will be made to minimise impacts to the community.
Some noise disturbance can be expected at times while these works are completed, however the work will be managed to minimise disturbance to nearby residents and businesses, as much as practically possible. You may also notice which is common when asphalting works are underway.
