Poplar Street Royal Park - Stormwater Drain Replacement

Footpath Renewals

9 November 2015 (amended: 9 March 2016)
Council has an asset plan for each asset type (eg roads, paths, lighting, buildings) and the Asset Management Plan for Paths has identified that certain paths are no longer suitable for safe use, or are not constructed in a way that meets their current use. That asset plan has listed the paths at the bottom of this article for renewal in 2015/16.

South Road Underpass – Bridge Replacement

29 October 2015 (amended: 9 March 2016)
A recent audit of the bridges for the Asset Management Plan for Bridges found that the South Road underpass which forms part of the River Torrens Linear Park (RTLP) shared use path is narrow and in a state of disrepair.

Bridge Maintenance

29 October 2015
The Council owns many bridges which are used for road traffic, cycling, or walking. They cross creeks and rivers, or run along the banks of these waterways. These bridges require periodic upgrade or large maintenance work (which occur every 5, 10, 20, 30, 50 years) and frequent minor maintenance (annually). The work in this project is periodic maintenance.
