Works to improve accessibility and regional connectivity across in Elderslie, Currans Hill and Spring Farm will begin shortly, after Council accepted a tender at last night’s Ordinary Meeting.

The construction of new footpaths and streetscape improvements will be carried out at five project sites, costing more than $700,000, to further connect the growing local community.

Project sites include:

  • Downes Reserve shared path, Currans Hill;
  • Throsby Reserve footpath, Currans Hill;
  • Springs Road footpath and streetscape, Spring Farm;
  • Lodges Road footpath and streetscape, Elderslie; and
  • Liz Kernohan Drive (Link Road) footpath and streetscape, Elderslie.

The works will include:

  • Construction of the concrete footpaths, shared paths and splitter islands;
  • Preparation of turfing and planting areas;
  • Supply and installation of plant stock and trees as specified in the drawings including fertilising, mulching and staking; and
  • Supply and laying of turf.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, said the works were key to creating better connectivity throughout the Camden area.

“As we grow as a community it is very important for Council to continue these sorts of improvements, to make sure our area remains inviting, enjoyable and safe for our residents,” Cr Fedeli said.

“These works will allow for greater connectivity around open spaces, through suburban streets while continuing to help foster the growth of our community.

“I look forward to seeing these projects completed and being used by local residents in the near future.”
