Road and parking closures for women’s big race

The SANTOS Women’s Tour returns to the Barossa for Stage 2 on Friday January 11 and brings with it several road closures and parking limitations. 

The following Road Closures will be put in place on Friday January 11, 2019:

  • Memorial Avenue, Nuriootpa, from Park Avenue to Murray Street will be closed between 7.00am and 11.00am.
  • Mengler Hill Road, Angaston from Light Pass Road, Bethany, to Gravel Pit Road, will be closed between 10.00am and 3.30pm.

Parking restrictions will be in place from 9.00am to 1.30pm on Friday January 11, 2019:

  • No parking to apply on: Murray Street, Angaston, between Sturt Street and Tyne Street on both sides of the road.
  • No parking to apply on: Eden Valley Road, Eden Valley between Cranes Range Road and a point 100m south of Burkes Hill Road on both sides of the road.

To avoid frustration an alternative travel plan for the day may be beneficial, and Barossa Council has asked that residents consider parking vehicles outside of the road closure zones.

“We appreciate that this may cause some inconvenience, but we hope that this will be outweighed by the significant benefits that the event will bring to the town and community, with visitors discovering all the wonderful things that South Australia has to offer,” The Barossa Council said. 

“If your property is tenanted please ensure residents are notified, thank you.”

The Route

Friday’s Stage 2 will see the riders start in Nuriootpa around 10.00am before tackling an undulating course through Greenock, Seppeltsfield, Tanunda and Bethany.

After then completing a loop through Mount McKenzie and Flaxman Valley, riders will head back through Angaston to complete another loop and the final climb up Mengler Hill. 

The stage is predicted to finish at approximately 1.40pm.
