In order to improve safety on Council’s road network, Council investigates and prioritises known areas requiring traffic calming.

What works we do
These works often include on-road solutions, such as:
- Speed humps
- Driveway links
- Signage and line marking upgrades
- Median islands
- Pedestrian Crossings
- On-road cycling network
- Car parks
Bus stop locations and signs are under the care of the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure however the stops are physically located on Council land. For access and inclusion Council is currently undertaking the upgrade of most bus stops to be compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act. Bus Stop upgrade works may include installing tactile ground surface indicators and levelling bus stops to allow for accessible wheelchair circulation space. Where there are existing bus shelters they may also be upgraded to include wheelchair seating space.
For any queries about bus stop locations and signage please contact the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure directly - www.dpti.sa.gov.au.
How will you know if works are planned?
Residents directly affected by the works will receive a letter with a description of the works proposed.
Just prior to the works beginning residents will receive a letter to let you know the work is about to commence and explain what the works involves as well as include important contact details.
How do we keep the community safe?
While we try to minimise the impact to residents, unfortunately some inconvenience may occur such as:
- Speed restrictions will be in place during works and the road may be closed during works, however local resident access will likely be maintained.
- Access to properties may be limited for short periods of time.
- Generally works are confined between 7am and 6pm Monday to Saturday.
When construction works are occurring your street is a work site and everyone's safety is important so please take care and listen to construction crews - they are approachable and willing to help if you need. Alternatively, please call the contact person listed in the letter.
To minimise impacts we consider: holidays; weather; fire danger season; and highly trafficked areas. Our time lines may change due to unforeseen circumstances, this makes it difficult to notify affected residents earlier.
If you have recently had works completed in your street, we would love to hear from you, please complete an online survey here.
