Road Rehabilitation - Sportsmans Drive, West Lakes

Sportsmans Drive in West Lakes between Brebner Drive and the southern intersection of St Andrews Way is programmed for a road rehabilitation in 2019/20.

Sportsman’s Drive is classified as a ‘distributor road’ in our road hierarchy, with no direct facing properties. As such, it plays an important role for all road users including pedestrians, bike riders, those using public transport and drivers. When roads are due for an upgrade, it is the ideal time to think about how the road will be used into the future and make improvements to safety and access.

The scope of the road works includes:

• Road rehabilitation of the road base and surface between Brebner Drive and St Andrews Way (south)

• Kerb and gutter replacement on both sides between Brebner Drive and St Andrews Way (south)

• Installation of full-time bicycle lanes (line-marked) which provide a strategic link to Council’s Bike Network routes, cater for the more confident on-road riders and encourage more active travel

• Installation of new indented parallel parking bays along sections of Sportsmans Drive to provide adequate car parking. Through our recent parking investigation, it was found that there is currently little demand for on-street parking on most days. In total the project provides 29 car parks along Sportsmans Drive.

• Installation of 3 new pedestrian crossing points to allow for safe access to other local paths and nearby services

We anticipate construction to commence in September/October 2019 by our Field Services team, with an estimated completion date of approximately March 2020.

If you have any comments about the concept plan you can:

  • Submit in writing Online
  • Write to us by addressing it to: PO Box 1, Woodville SA 5011

Any written comments are to be received by Thursday 15 August 2019

  • With regard to the proposed indent parking along Sportsmans Drive, currently some the units place their bins out on this area, so after the indent parking is completed where will the bins be placed for collection. It appears they will have to be on the footpath behind the cars ...... where will pedestrians walk and how will the rubbish trucks pick up the bins from behind the cars? Will these parks have time restrictions? Otherwise they will become daily parking spaces for the shopping centre workers like Beeston Way is now.

    Thank you for contacting us about this project. The current proposal leaves approximately 8 metres on either side of the driveway near number 100 Sportsmans Drive and another 8 metres in between the indented bays. There is also space for bin presentation to the north of the driveway near number 2 Sportsmans Drive. We will review the area available for bin presentation and reduce the length of the parking bay if required.  The intent is that these bays not be timed, as a direct replacement to the on street parking that is currently available.  Providing as many indented bays on Sportsmans Drive helps to ease parking pressure from Beeston Way.
