Fire Danger Season

Fire Danger - 2016



The Esplanade, Coffin Bay

Coffin Bay residents, who reside along the Esplanade from Lear Street to Long Beach Road, are advised that resealing bitumen works are programmed to be undertaken at the end of January/beginning of February 2017. This work should cause minimal inconvenience. Residents are also requested to refrain from parking along or immediately adjacent the road during works. Please refer any queries to the Works Manager at the Council office 8676 0400.

Tulka S Bend

Following an inability to resolve a number of contractual issues, the Council has taken back possession of the site. Council staff are repairing the road surface and reinstating traffic management signage. Due to the protracted negotiations and the time of year, any further work on site other than maintaining the road surface will be unlikely until late January or early February. Council will be working with the funding agencies (Motor Accident Commission and DPTI) to bring this project to a conclusion as soon as practicable in 2017.
We apologise for the inconvenience.


Flinders Highway Reconstruction

Contractors will be commencing road works on or around the 26 October 2016. Flinders Highway will be closed to traffic between Cockatoo Road and Winters Hill Drive. Detours will be via Panoramic Drive. If you have any queries regarding the road closure please contact Downer's Project Manager - Donna Gray 0488 932 879.


Patrol grading has recommenced.  Please check the Latest News for the roads being graded.
