Three Gullies Road Upgrade

In 2023, the City of Victor Harbor upgraded a stretch of Three Gullies Road in Encounter Bay, from Battye Road to adjacent Mayflower Court.

Three Gullies Road had a number of degraded areas and potholes, and much of the spray sealed surface had reached the end of its useful life. The aim of this project was to improve safety along an important route that connects some of Victor Harbor's popular tourism areas and is used by local residents, visitors and commercial vehicles.

The section of road upgraded as part of this project is around 490 metres in length and includes a steep gradient.

Improvements that were completed as part of the upgrade included:

  • Bitumen works, including deep lift patches to areas requiring reconstruction
  • Spray seal works
  • Safety upgrades to guard railing, including rail adjustments and end terminals
  • Shoulder maintenance works
  • Storm water adjustments
  • Line marking.

Road construction works commenced in mid February 2023 and were completed by May 2023.

The project was funded by the SA Government's Special Local Roads Program.
