Bay Road Project December 2021 - January 2022
Tue 14 Dec 2021 to Mon 31 Jan 2022
Heads up regarding major work in Moonta:
Underground storm water works along the main line have been completed from Coast Road towards the foreshore.
Focus moving forward is the section from Hughes Avenue towards Moonta township.
Council is working with SA Power Networks in the installation of electrical conduits for future proofing the undergrounding of powerlines.
Six crossings between Hughes Avenue and Coast Road have been completed, contractors installing conduits between Coast Road and the foreshore.
The contractor, together with Council staff are working with SA Water where trenching impacts aged SA water mains.
Special consideration is required in crossing each water main resulting in temporary shut downs whilst the pipe work is laid and backfilled.
Council is also working with SA Water in applying underground water connections for irrigating Bay Road median strips.
Traffic management and project update notices have been provided to residents along Bay Road and all associated side roads via mail, VMS boards, Council social media platforms and YP Country Times to the community.
Due to lost time with collapsing sands, water main shut downs and some inclement weather, the program of works has been adjusted; kerbing and road construction has been rescheduled until late January.
Site works are to shut down over the Christmas period returning on the 10 January.
The area (road) will be open over this closed period.
