Road Sealing Program

Boral has invested nearly $250,000 in the Whyalla Asphalt Plant at its Iron Knob Road quarry to get the latest Road Sealing Program underway in the city.

A breakdown of the critical heavy-duty mixing drum, which is used in the asphalt-making process, caused a delay in the program scheduled for a start late last year. Boral Asphalt’s South Australian Production and Assets Manager, Warren Marshall said the consequent investment in the Whyalla Asphalt Plant was a sign of the company’s commitment to the city as it looks to a long-standing relationship with the City of Whyalla.

“The breakdown was an unfortunate unplanned incident that did put the road sealing program back a few months,” Mr Marshall said.

“We’ve rectified the problem that caused the drum damage and installed not only a new drum, but many other critical operating parts to ensure a reliable operating plant and a quality mix to supply safer roads to the City of Whyalla.

“Boral has assigned two dedicated plant workers to the Whyalla Asphalt Plant to ensure we are ready and able to respond to any road works required by the City of Whyalla.”

Nine roads in Whyalla have been earmarked under the program for resealing, resurfacing and restoration by Boral crews.

Work over the next two weeks is scheduled on the following roads:

  • Buttlingara Way
  • Delprat Terrace (Gay St to Cudmore Tce)
  • Billing Street (Creber St to Nicolson Ave)
  • Neill Street (St John Cr to Billing St)
  • Rudall Avenue (Elliott St to Angwin St)
  • Norrie Avenue (Gowrie Ave Intersection)
  • Story Street (Mills St to Jacobs St)
  • Cook Street (Story St to Oborn St)
  • Sharp Street (Whitehead St to Donaldson Tce)

Remedial work will also be carried out on a section of Nicolson Avenue where a water main leak last year created a slight dip in an area of the westbound lane, west of the Westland Shopping Centre roundabout.

The roads program will result in some disruptions to traffic and temporary access restrictions.  Boral and Council thank motorists and residents in advance for their patience.

Boral has performed letterbox drops to affected residents and there will be regular social media updates put out by Council informing motorists of traffic changes as the works progress.

Boral is the chosen contractor by Council for this road program. Boral is a leader in asphalt paving, pavement construction and maintenance; national supplier of asphalt products and materials for surfacing and maintenance of road networks with high standard of engineering expertise; road technology, product durability, quality and technical service.
