Updates and information on current road projects & patrol grading.

Chapman Road - Temporary road closure by SA Water

To ensure the ongoing reliable supply of water to property, SA Water is going to double the current capacity of the two existing water tanks located at North Shields servicing the area.

A new 10 million litre water tank will be installed, with temporary road closures occurring on a section of Chapman Road between Clarkes Lane and McFarlane Road on November 10 and 11.

Temporary interruptions to your water supply may be required, and we will provide you with advance notice where this is the case.

If you have any questions about the improvements we are making at North Shields, please contact 1300 SA WATER (1300 729 283) or email

Greenpatch Road

Please be aware that there are currently road works on Greenpatch Road that involves the deposit of material onto the road in large mounds.

Thank you.

Bratten Way

A contractor has been engaged to undertake second stage of the pavement rehabilitation on Bratten Way from Lawrence Rd intersection running ~3 km East.
These works are programmed to be completed by mid-October before the increased harvest traffic is expected to start.
The road will remain open to traffic throughout the works albeit under the control of traffic lights and reduce speed limits so a short delay could be expected. We apologise for any inconvenience the project may cause.

Cemetery Hill Road

Information from the District Council of Tumby Bay:

Please be advised that the bridge located approximately midway between the Bratten Way and Pub Corner Road intersections on the road will be closed for two days to allow new surfacing works to occur.

Subject to weather conditions, this work is currently planned to be undertaken on Thursday-Friday,  August 13-14. Road closure signage will be in place during this period, and road users are advised to use an alternative route.

Bratten Way

Overlay of the Bratten Way Stage 1 works that was cement stabilised some three years ago is due to commence in March.

The management plan for the Bratten Way is that sections that have been cement stabilised as a result of pavement failure are required to be overlaid with crushed rock and sealed within 5 years to protect the pavement.
