The Australian and South Australian governments have announced funding of $14 million for the planning, design and construction of public roadworks supporting the major private investment at Thomas Foods International.
This project will provide public road access to the multi-million dollar facility, including a new 2.2km access road and an associated junction at Mannum Road. This new junction will include protected turning, and deceleration and acceleration lanes to assist with traffic flows along Mannum Road.
The new meat processing facility will employ up to 2,000 staff and will use higher productivity freight vehicles to serve the site’s transport requirements.
This project is jointly funded by the Australian and South Australian Governments.
This project is expected to support approximately 40 full-time equivalent jobs over the life of the project
