Public warnings
24 January 2014

The Deputy Commissioner for Consumer Affairs is issuing a public warning statement to warn consumers not to deal with itinerant bitumen layers reportedly operating in the Riverland Area.

Two separate businesses in Loxton have been approached by men claiming to have leftover bitumen and offering to lay bitumen for payment in cash. The men were described as having Irish/English accents and drove a small tray top truck fitted with a black canopy.

The Deputy Commissioner has reasonable grounds to suspect that the bitumen layers are unlicensed and any bitumen laying services performed by them would be unsatisfactory.
