Road, bridge money
Hindmarsh Shire Council has been successful in gaining State Government funding under the first round of a Fixing Country Roads program.
Mayor Ron Ismay said the council was pleased to receive $803,667 to improve Rainbow-nhill Road.
“The council will be required to contribute $176,333 to the total project cost, which is expected to be $980,000,” he said.
This money will go towards three projects: design and construct the widening of the existing Outlet Creek concrete bridge to increase traffic lanes to 3.5 metres and improve approach alignments; Sandhill Bend reconstruction on Rainbow-nhill Road that includes widening and realigning of the road curves; widening and sealing of 2.3 kilometres of narrow pavement on Nhill-rainbow Road north of Lorquon Road.
An expected completion date for the three projects is June, 2019.
