Light Regional Council, in partnership with the Local Government Association and the South Australian Government embarked on an exciting Accelerated Infrastructure Upgrade Program, which created almost 40 new full-time jobs over a two-year period.
The program provided upgrades and enhancements to a broad range of infrastructure across the Light Regional Council area, including the sealing of 72 township roads in Allendale North, Freeling, Gawler Belt, Greenock, Kapunda, Roseworthy and Wasleys.
Street trees, street lighting, kerbing and guttering are part of the road upgrade program which will also include sealing specific tourist routes in the Seppeltsfield area.
More than 18 kilometres of footpaths were created, linking schools, doctors, shopping precincts and tourist attractions. There were also significant stormwater upgrades in Freeling, Greenock, Kapunda and Wasleys.
The Accelerated Infrastructure Upgrade Program was proudly supported by the State Local Government Infrastructure Partnership – a job stimulus initiative of the Government of South Australia, the Local Government Association and the Local Government Finance Authority.
