SA upgrades ports

-

IN A win for Kangaroo Island businesses, the South Australian Government has announced $22 million will be spent upgrading the Cape Jervis and Penneshaw ports that service ferries to the popular tourism destinatio­n.

The expenditur­e will see new and improved berthing and mooring infrastruc­ture installed at the ports, a move the state government said is designed to reduce the risk of regular and longer shutdowns.

“Effective, capable and reliable port infrastruc­ture...is critical to the welfare and economic success of Kangaroo Island, as a critical sea link between the island and the mainland for cars, freight and passengers,” SA Transport Minister Corey Wingard said.
