The Woodlands Ward is a hive of activity at the moment. Here's an overview of some of the bigger things going on:
We have built the new playground and in the coming months, new light towers and a small fitness node will be installed. Council has committed $4 million to a full redevelopment of the site, contingent on matching funds from the Federal Government. In May, a $4 million matching promise was made, contingent on the Turnbull Government returning to power. I look forward to working with the Federal Government to polish this rough diamond in Marion's crown.
Jervois Street Reserve:
It isn't often that you get to create a stunning park from scratch, but that is exactly what we’ve done. It has taken five years to get to this point, and it’s exciting to see this amazing new park completed. I’ve been spending time there with my family and our community.
The Glandore Laneways had been under control of the Public Trustee for 76 years. Residents had the legal right to use these lanes to access their properties, however the lanes had not been maintained by the Public Trustee. In March, after five years of work, Council formally declared these lanes ‘public roads’ and realignment and surfacing work will soon commence.
Railway Terrace upgrade:
The Railway Terrace walking and cycling path and streetscape upgrade has been completed. This creates the next section of Adelaide-Marino bikeway and improves an area that needed attention.
