Footpath works - Long Valley Road, Strathalbyn

Alexandrina Council will be commencing footpath works as part of its Capital Works Program along Long Valley Road, Strathalbyn on 20 August 2019. They are expected to be completed by 6September 2019, subject to weather conditions.

The works will consist of the removal of existing spray seal footpath and reinstatement of an Asphalt treatment along the Eastern side of Long Valley Road, between Avenue Road and Albion Drive.

During the construction phase, Council will have traffic restrictions in place and restricted access throughout the site as required. Residents, business operators and local road users may be inconvenienced at times; however, Alexandrina Council ensures that the work is necessary to provide continued asset improvement to Council’s infrastructure.

Old SA Water Pump Station site

One of Alexandrina Council’s premier riverside boulevards will become more welcoming and accessible, with the purchase of a currently unutilised piece of land on Liverpool Road in Goolwa.

At its meeting on Monday 21 January 2019, Alexandrina Council endorsed the purchase of the SA Water Pump Station on Liverpool Road, Goolwa. The purchase will see Alexandrina Council partner with SA Water to transform the old SA Water Pump Station on Liverpool Road, Goolwa into community open space at a cost of $63,500.

The purchase requires SA Water to decommission the site, remove structures, and landscape the site with turf and a bush tucker garden with Council maintaining the site into the future. The Pump Station previously pumped water from the Murray River for the town water supply, with these operations ceasing many years ago.  The 1200m2 site is currently fenced and contains two outbuildings and a submerged holding tank.

Goolwa Wharf Recycling Project - Waste Less… Recycle More

Alexandrina Council working in partnership with Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority, Cittaslow Goolwa and Goolwa Tidy Towns has recently installed two trial public place recycling bin bank stations within the Goolwa Wharf Precinct.

The aim of the trial is to encourage members of the public to ‘Waste Less....Recycle More’ by sorting their waste and disposing it into the appropriate bins.

The public place recycling stations contain a general waste bin, recycling bin and 10c deposit bin for bottle and can recycling.

The stations will be in place over the summer holiday season.

Council and Fleurieu Regional Waste Authority will monitor contents to determine the success of the trial. 

It is well known that a large percentage of waste going to landfill is recyclable and we can all do our bit by sorting our waste to reduce the amount of waste being sent to landfill.
