Project Update: Council Drive

Eaton Fair contractors working on realignment and reconstruction of Council Drive are moving into a new stage of their project requiring changes to access of the area.

From Monday, 6 September, access to Council Drive via Recreation Drive will be closed to all traffic apart from delivery trucks to the shopping centre.

As has been the case for the past few weeks, access to our Administration Centre, Eaton and the Football Pavilion is still via a newly-created entrance at the western side of our carpark, accessed via the Eaton Drive/Hamilton Road roundabout.

To accommodate these works along with Council’s construction of a new $1 million skatepark, the Glen Huon playground will remain closed for a short period.
We’ll let you know when it’s safe to access the playground again.

Dardanup Shire President Mick Bennett said he believed works would speed up somewhat in coming weeks with the arrival of spring and its associated warmer days.

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.
