Breakout Creek Project Receives State Government Backing

We are pleased to announce we have successfully secured State Government funding to continue our commitment to the rehabilitation and restoration of the River Torrens at Breakout Creek.

Stage 3 of the redevelopment program, which aims to set the benchmark for urban waterway restoration internationally, will receive $2 million from the State Government’s Open Spaces and Places for People Grants towards the delivery of the $12 million project.

Key objectives of the plan include improving accessibility and safety in the area, boosting recreation opportunities for the public and enhancing biodiversity in the area.

Showcasing the stories of our Kaurna heritage and the riparian journey from the Adelaide Hills to the coast, this restoration will also form a valuable habitat for the endangered Australasian Bittern and other aquatic and terrestrial species, such as native bees and lamprey.

The project is a joint initiative with the Australian Government, the City of West Torrens and the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges NRM Board in nurturing the public’s relationship with the environment.

Stage 3 will mark the final step of the Breakout Creek project which will provide a boost to the economy through a host of local job opportunities.

Work is expected to begin in December with a timeline to completion of approximately 18 months.
