Aston Hills Completes Significant Section of Heysen Boulevard in Mount Barker
Lanser is excited to announce that Aston Hills has completed a connected and significant section of Heysen Boulevard.
This important $9m infrastructure project will act as a vital new connector road for Mount Barker, creating convenient and safe access to the freeway for the region. Lanser has announced that their final stage of construction on Heysen Boulevard is now complete, delivering a connected and significant section of ring road to the community.
“Our final section links Springs Road to Paech Road in Mount Barker – giving residents at Aston Hills direct, congestion-free access to the freeway and the broader Hills community convenient access to the new Aston Hills Shopping Centre,” said Jason Green, Lanser’s Managing Director.
“We are a proud South Australian company and we know how important this connection is to the Council and the community. We are always working together as a team to deliver the very best outcomes for the community and to deliver on our promises. This link will now provide a vital link between Aston Hills, Mount Barker’s town centre, the freeway, the Summit Sport and Recreation Park, the new Aston Hills Shopping Centre and Wistow.”
Clocking in at 6250m, the entire plan for Heysen Boulevard runs from Springs Road to Flaxley Road. Aston Hills has now delivered 1950m of the road, representing 31% of the total road length and 52% of the total road built so far.
The Mayor of Mount Barker stated “Council congratulates Lanser on the completion of this important section of Heysen Boulevard connecting Springs Road to Paech Road. While there is still much to do, this final section through Aston Hills takes pressure off the Hartman Road and Alexandrina Road intersection and will be welcomed by residents heading to the freeway, town centre and other destinations in the district.”
The roll-out of Heysen Boulevard has been complex, as each land developer is responsible for building the sections of boulevard on the land that they control. With six major developers operating in Mount Barker, Lanser is thrilled to have delivered on their commitment. The road has been opened with traffic controls in place, and once the road has been completely energised these restrictions will be lifted.
Dan Cregan MP, Member for Kavel said “I am keen to see as much of this critical road completed as soon as possible and very much welcome the opening of this next stage.”
Aston Hills launched in 2014, and at a cost of around $4,600 per linear metre the boulevard has been staged alongside land releases at the award-winning development. With plans for 2,200 homes as well as a brand new shopping centre set to open its doors soon, Aston Hills is also home to a childcare centre and future sites for a medical centre and education campus as well as the Aston Hills Golf Club and a Mountain Bike Park. With a UDIA Award for Environmental Excellence already under its belt, Aston Hills is the most comprehensively masterplanned lifestyle destination in the region.
