This joint application for funding support is on behalf of the Yorke Peninsula Alliance, consisting of the Barunga West Council, the Copper Coast Council and the Yorke Peninsula Council. The project is a Yorke Peninsula regional road network package that will deliver reconstruction works, shoulder sealing and safety enhancements to benefit the freight industry, regional communities and tourists.
The project will be a coordinated and complementary program of road upgrade works by three adjoining councils who have recognized the need to work together to deliver contiguous improvements rather than ad hoc fixes that are not linked.
The result will be quality, safe roads that link and traverse the three districts for the benefit of the industry.
Work will be focused on ensuring effective "first and last" mile freight route conditions affecting a significant portion of the state's grain transport area with flow-on cost benefits to businesses.
