Tour Down Under Road Closures Jan 17th 2019

It is that time of year again the Tour Down Under is coming through our next door neighbor town of Uraidla. This means that getting to the quarry might be difficult on the day, so please use the map below as a guide to work out a good route.

I have included alternate (bikes will be everywhere!) routes to avoid the main race, these include the Basket Range and Carey Gully Quarries.

This year the TDU is doing 7 laps of Uraidla and Piccadilly starting at about 12:15pm on the 17th with a very rough finish time of 2:30pm but I would expect this to be later.

  • Main TDU Route – Orange
  • Alternate Routes – Blue

New Photos: Glen Osmond Landscaping

The boys @ Glen Osmond Landscaping have sent through some photos of a job they did a while back. They have turned what was an almost unmaintainable sloped incline into a beautiful terraced garden. This increases the usability of the land at the top and bottom of the slope, as well as increasing safety and visual effect.

Roadworks to hit Greenhill Rd from the 3rd of April

Roadworks have been scheduled to perform significant repairs on Greenhill Rd at Carey Gully to rectify storm damage. Please refer to letter from DPTI below.

“Greenhill Road will be temporarily closed between Deviation Road and Tanahmerah Road,
Carey Gully, from Tuesday 3 April to late May 2018 (weather permitting), with traffic detoured
via Rangeview Road, Carey Gully Road, Gum Flat Road and Tanahmerah Road.

Businesses and residents on Greenhill Road will be able to access their property and are
asked to follow the directions of traffic management staff and obey all signage.

In the event of extreme weather, these works may be rescheduled.

If you require any further information please telephone DPTI on 1300 794 880 or email
dpti.communityrelations@sa.gov.au”

The only way into Carey Gully Sandstone is from the Balhannah end of Greenhill Rd, not far up from the end of the roadworks so it is relatively painless. Please drive through carefully obeying all road workers and signs.
