Intersection closure - Ashbrook Avenue and Lewis Road, Payneham

Following the storm event which took place in the early hours of Wednesday 28 December 2016, a large sink hole has opened up in the road intersection at Ashbrook Avenue and Lewis Road, Payneham.

The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is currently investigating the cause of the sink hole.
