Crossing Improvements around Primary Schools in Welland

29 October 2015 (amended: 19 January 2016)
Bridges Street, Coombe Road, Knight Street and Barham Street experience high levels of congestion during school drop-off and pick-up times. The improvement of footpaths and crossing facilities, as well as the establishment of park-and-step zones will provide a safe environment for those who engage in active travel modes and encourage more students and their families to walk, cycle and scoot to school, leading to a reduction in vehicle congestion in the streets surrounding the school.

Footpath Renewals

9 November 2015
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.

Military Road West Beach – New Wombat Crossing and Cycling Lanes

9 November 2015
This project is in response to a request from the South Australian Police (SAPOL) for assistance in reducing the speed that drivers are travelling along Military Road and another request from Adelaide Shores to reduce speed and improve access between its facilities which are on both sides of Military Road. Adelaide Shores is contributing 50% of the cost of the pedestrian crossing.

Bridge Maintenance

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.
