Share the road with our trucks

Thu, 14 March, 2024

With major roadworks taking place in the Fleurieu Peninsula, there’s an increase in activity in the area, including more trucks on the roads.

There are trucks travelling into the region everyday bringing raw materials essential to construction services. They will be moving into and out of our construction sites and site compounds throughout the day.

Heavy vehicles are large and often slow, so please be patient as you travel close to our construction sites.
