Bicycle riding on a road
  • $1.68 million
  • The District Council of Tumby Bay has been announced to receive $1.68 million from the State Government's Local Government Infrastructure Partnership Program.
  • The project involves demolition of existing and construction of a new culvert structure on the Graham Smelt Causeway with adequate design for vehicle loading and environmental conditions providing a 100 year life to key components.
  • The upgrade will provide for safe passage by cyclists and pedestrians via a shared use path, and will also increase the flow capacity of the structure, addressing the environmental concerns expressed by the Coastal Protection Board and Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board regarding the tidal flow restriction that the current structure creates for the Tumby Bay wetlands.
  • The Local Government Infrastructure Partnership Program was established to support councils to accelerate spending on community infrastructure projects that contribute to the future economic growth of the region, or support the Government’s Growth State agenda, or improve local infrastructure facilities for businesses and community organisations to enable them to grow in the future, or upgrade key community facilities.
  • Applications to the Local Government Infrastructure Partnership Program are now closed.
