Mile Hill Road now open to traffic

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises motorists and the general public that Mile Hill Road in Tantanoola has reopened to traffic following essential clearance work.
While the threat posed by the bushfire fire near Tantanoola and Glencoe in the Lower South East has reduced, public safety remains an absolute priority and CFS advises that there may still be smoke in the area which could reduce visibility.
The public are advised to take care over the next few days.
It is likely that there will remain dangers posed by unstable trees and other hazards for some time. Please take care when travelling through the area.
The Department acknowledges the outstanding efforts of the many CFS volunteers and emergency services personnel who responded to the bushfire and worked tirelessly to keep the people of Glencoe and Tantanoola safe.
The people of South Australia also owe a debt of thanks to fire fighters, including those from Victoria and New South Wales, who provided invaluable assistance in dealing with the fire in this region.
