$1.5 million boost to Adelaide Hills infrastructure projects

​Adelaide Hills Council has been allocated $1,571,812 worth of funding through the Federal Government Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program. This funding will be directed towards shovel ready projects that will deliver a wide-range of benefits across the Adelaide Hills Council Community.

Adelaide Hills Mayor Dr Jan-Claire Wisdom is confident these projects will have a positive effect on the community in addition to improving roads and infrastructure across the district.

"Council has chosen projects that improve the safety and enhance the wellbeing of our community," Jan-Claire said.

"We've also focused on new infrastructure that will make our community feel proud and ambitious for a brighter future."

"It's important that we strive to improve people's lives on a daily basis, but that we are also implementing projects selected as part of our ongoing recovery focus."

The seventeen projects selected to form Council's application to the Program have an emphasis on accessibility, visual amenities and safety. They include:

  • Installation of a School Crossing in Mill Road, Lobethal ($30,000)
  • New footpath from the kindergarten to playground in Birdwood ($25,000)
