Willson Drive, Martin Road and Jervois Road - Road Network

Consultation has concluded

Willson Drive Jervois Road Intersection

In the adoption of the 2017/18 Annual Business Plan and Budget, Council included a project for $10,000 to investigate the Jervois, Willson and Martin Road network.

Tonkin Consulting was engaged by Council to undertake a road safety audit of traffic conditions along Jervois Road, Willson Drive and Martin Road, Yankalilla.

The Tonkin report has now been completed and the report is provided for your in the document library.

Following the engagement of Tonkin Consulting, a petition from Mr Richard Fairweather, Martin Road, containing 108 signatures was received 20 July 2018.

The heading of the supplied petition was:

“Petition to Yankalilla Council for sealing of Willson Drv between Bower Rd and Martin Rd and sealing of Martin Rd”.

The petition states the ‘Action petitioned for’:

“For the health and safety of residents, that live on and users of these roads who live in Yankalilla and Normanville and the many tourists that use these roads”

The head petitioner stated in his covering letter:

“This petition indicates the concerns individuals have not only towards the safety, general state of the roads but importantly the health issues that arise from severe dust generated in the dry months”

“We do ask that Council give due regards to these issues and seriously consider bringing forward the bituminising or at least in the short term a more durable road surface so the issues mentioned will be rectified”

It is noted the Tonkin Report, commenced prior to the petition, does not address all the concerns of the petition.

At the Council meeting 18 December 2018, Council resolved:

  1. That following the July petition from 108 people, that the Council conduct meetings as required with the petitioners and others interested, to listen to their concerns about Jervois, Willson and Martin roads.
