Roadworks to start and Sturt upgrades

Water and sewer connections – University Drive, Sports Road and Ovals

Works will commence in mid-August to install water and sewer connections to the Flinders Village development and the Health and Medical Research Building (HMRB). It will involve road works while underground pipes are installed, and are expected to be completed by early December 2022.

Works will commence at the intersection of Sturt Road and University Drive, working south in sections before moving to Sports Drive and finishing on the Oval. While vehicle access will be maintained throughout, the number of lanes and the speed limits will be reduced, for safety reasons. Please slow down and drive carefully, allow additional time to move through the area – and consider using Flinders Drive as an alternative entry and exit.
