Footpath works - Langhorne Creek Road, Strathalbyn

Alexandrina Council commenced footpath works as part of its Capital Works Program along Langhorne Creek Road, Strathalbyn on 19 September 2018 and are scheduled to be completed by 19 October 2018, subject to weather conditions.

The works consist of the installation of a new concrete footpath along the Southern side of Langhorne Creek Road and heading West on South Terrace to Mitre 10 and also a section connecting into existing footpath at the roundabout located on South Terrace and East Terrace.

During the construction phase, Council will have traffic restrictions in place and restricted access throughout the site as required.

Upgrade of Strathalbyn Lions Park Playground

The Lions Park Playground on Colman Terrace in Strathalbyn, is currently being upgraded with brand new play equipment and a new hill slide. Complementing the neighbouring swim centre and picnic areas, and just across the road from the Strathalbyn Library and Community Centre, the playground is an ever-popular location for families to unwind in the serenity of the scenic Soldiers Memorial Gardens.

The existing play equipment was installed in 1999 and is now reaching the end of its structural warranty period. The new equipment will see the play space functional for the next generation of youngsters to swing, slide and climb their hearts out.

Council allocated a budget of $109,000 in the 2017-18 budget and following a tender process in March 2018, are now ready to commence construction.

The playground is expected to re-open by 8 October 2018, dependent on weather conditions and any other unexpected delays. Public access will be restricted during this time. Additional landscaping will be completed following the playground being re-opened.

There are alternative play grounds around Strathalbyn to enjoy while the upgrades to Lions Park are undertaken; including at the Railway Station, at Strathalbyn Oval, at the Forrest Reserve Nature Playground, at Pipers Crest on Braemar Drive and on Cobb & Co Court.

Emergency Repairs to Goolwa Wharf

The current emergency repairs to the Goolwa Wharf will be completed as a priority to ensure safe public access to the wharf. 

Future repairs and replacement of the wharf structure continue to be assessed, costed and considered for staging in conjunction with external grant funding opportunities and existing budgets.
