Maintenance cleaning of Milang Boat Ramp

Council have scheduled a contractor to undertake maintenance cleaning of the Milang Boat Ramp. Work will start on Monday 13 January 2020 and will consist of installing a silt fence within the lake to ensure minimal disturbance to the lake bed. Contractors will be removing silt/spoil build up from the concrete ramp only. Once this is done, the silt fence will need to stay in place until sand settlement is complete (up to 5 days).

Boat ramp users will have the option to utilise the boat ramp between the shacks on Paddlesteamer Drive.

Strathalbyn Soldiers Memorial Garden paving works 

Council’s Contractor has commenced work on the first stage of renovation at the Strathalbyn Soldiers Memorial Gardens monument. Works include the removal of the old flagstone paving, which will be retained and reused at a later date.

The site will be repaved to new levels and an additional Mintaro slate step installed to make the approach to the monument safer for the public. The base will also have a new render applied and surrounding turf will be removed and relayed to the new levels.

This will improve the appearance of the area and increase the area’s usability.

Works are estimated to take approximately 2-3 weeks for completion.

Footpath Works - Loveday Street, Goolwa

Alexandrina Council will be commencing footpath works as part of its Capital Works Program along Loveday Street, Goolwa on 11 December 2019. The works are expected to be completed by 28 January 2020, subject to weather conditions.

The works consist of the installation of a new 1.5m wide concrete footpath along the Western side of Loveday Street, between Gardiner Street and Crocker Street.

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.

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.
