New alignments considered
The Government has given in-principle
support to the council pursuing either
the eastern alignment or Eckerman
Avenue alignment for the lower end of
the link road.
The outcome was revealed at a special
Gawler Council meeting last night.
The State Government has budgeted
$55 million for constructing the new
collector road linking Calton Road,
in the north, to Potts Road (and,
ultimately, Main North Road), in the
Mayor Karen Redman said council
supported extending the link road
further south to Tiver Road, creating
more effective traffic movements away
from the town's centre.
"Unfortunately, the timing means a
detailed analysis that will explore where
we go next -- and whether it's the State
Government or Gawler Council that
will undertake further investigation and
community consultation on the link
road alignments -- will have to wait
until the new year," she said.
However, local residents fear they will
lose their homes under council's plans
for alternative routes.
Speaking on behalf of residents,
Graeme Williamson said the proposal
would have several consequences,
including home losses.
"Council continues to spout the Tiver
Road connection will solve traffic
problems," he said.
"The reality is that using Bentley Road
to connect to Potts Road and Tiver
Road will provide an alternative path
to get out of Gawler, but on its own
will not solve the congestion problems
centred around the Potts Road,
Main North Road and Gawler Green
intersections and the associated schools,
shops and services."
Neighbour Kym Staples and her
partner, David Harper, moved into their
Gawler-One Tree Hill Road property
last year after consulting council on the
"Before we bought, we actually did
a lot of research, including talking to
the council about what impact (new)
development would have on this
property if we bought," she said.
"They assured us that there, actually,
was going to be no impact at all."
Now the pair is concerned they will
be forced out of their house if council
progresses the Eckerman Avenue
Council will have the power to
acquire land for the project, if the
road is classified as local and the State
Government fails to reach a deal with
Council chief executive Henry Inat said
he expected a detailed report proposing
a series of actions for the council in
response to the State Government's
decision would be presented in
