  • Notification of Restoration Works to the Historic Lobethal Chimney on Mill Road, Lobethal. – Stage 2

    Stage 2 of the Lobethal Chimney Restoration on Mill Road will commence on Monday 21st March 2022 and will continue through till 30th May 2022.

    The chimney forms part of Lobethal’s early history and is included in the State Heritage Place listing over the ex-woollen mill site. As part of the planned restoration work and to address significant safety issues we will need to close the southern entry to Mill Road over two stages for a total period of 8 – 12 weeks. Our primary interest in closing this end of Mill Road is the physical safety of contractors undertaking this work and residents and motorists using Mill Road.

    Why are the works taking place?

    We’re undertaking these works as the chimney is deteriorating to a point it will become unsafe in the near future. The chimney forms an important part of Lobethal’s History and the planned works are being funded from sale proceeds of the Woollen Mill site divestment.

    When are the works taking place?

    Stage two:

    Thursday 24th March to Monday 30th May 2022.

    The works will be undertaken between 7am and 7pm on weekdays.

    Where are the works taking place?

    The work will be limited to the area directly around the chimney and will require scaffold to be erected out onto the road carriageway.

    A mark-up of the section of road affected is attached for your information.

    What does this mean for you?

    Access to Mill Road from Lobethal Road (southern end of Mill Road) will be closed for the duration of Stage 2 restoration work during the dates indicated above. Detours will be in place as indicated by the map over the page.

    Further information?

    Please feel very welcome to contact me at ntaarnby@ahc.sa.gov.au , or 8408 0506 if you have any queries or concerns about these works.
