Hahndorf wombat crossings

Two people using a wombat crossing in Hahndorf

Two new wombat pedestrian crossings on Mount Barker Road, Hahndorf, have been installed and are operational.

The two crossings – one at the north end and one at the south end of Mount Barker Road – were installed following an overwhelming response from locals during recent community consultation.

Hahndorf is a popular town for South Australians and tourists alike, and the wombat crossings provide a designated place for pedestrians to cross.

Wombat crossings are a combination of raised platforms and striped crossings, where pedestrians have right of way and drivers are required to stop and give way.

The works cost $250,000 and were funded by Responsive Road Safety Program.
