Work has commenced on the final phase of the Nuriootpa Flood Mitigation Project to protect the Nuriootpa township from flooding from the North Para River in a 1:100 year storm event.
The final stage is the installation of concrete footings, to support temporary flood barriers at road crossings in the following locations (see map below):
• Memorial Avenue
• Park Avenue
• Lae Road
• Penrice Road
• Research Road
Traffic controls will be in place around Memorial Avenue and Park Avenue until Christmas, with road crossing works scheduled on Penrice Road and Research Road from early December through to early February (indicative). Further traffic controls can be expected throughout the duration of the work until February 2018 (weather dependent).
