Keeping you updated: Council Drive roadworks

Construction work along Council Drive in Eaton is shifting up a gear as Eaton Fair contractors working on realignment and reconstruction of the road are joined by our contractors who have started preparing the site for our brilliant new $1 million skatepark and pump track.

Due to portions of the road being closed, you can continue to visit our Administration Centre via a new carpark entrance accessed from the Eaton/Drive Hamilton Road roundabout or northern end of Council Drive.

In order for construction work to move forward, the road will now be closed further south and previous access to the Football Pavilion is now closed. Access to the Football Pavilion is now through the Shire Administration Carpark, as shown in the map below.

Dardanup Shire President Mick Bennett said Eaton Fair, its contractors and Shire Staff were all working together to ensure the period of interruption to usual traffic flows was completed as quickly and as efficiently as possible, while ensuring easy access to community facilities in the area is maintained.

“Please exercise additional caution when driving or walking through the affected areas and stay tuned via our website and Facebook page for rolling updates,” Cr Bennett said.

These changes to Council Drive will be an important stepping stone towards delivering the improvements set out under the Eaton Fair Activity Centre Plan approved by Council in 2017 and subsequently endorsed by the WA Planning Commission.
