Brandis Road is part of a residential area that has been joined by new housing developments, meaning that greater traffic is being experienced by home owners.

“This road has been impacted by urban development, which makes it a prime candidate for Roads To Recovery funding,” Mayor Docherty said.

“The works will include new kerbing, guttering, stormwater, pavement, footpaths and upgraded street lighting.”

The project will also include works on adjoining Olive Grove and Valiant Road, and follows similar works having already been done on Chellaston and Peerless roads.

Work is anticipated to start during this financial year.

Economic growthIn further roads news from the Annual Business Plan, Carclew Road at Penfield Gardens has been earmarked for sealing in the City of Playford’s 2017/18 Annual Business Plan.

Located just north of Angle Vale Road, Carclew is a lengthy thoroughfare utilised by local agricultural and horticultural businesses, with work commencing on stage one of the sealing project this financial year.

The $1.8 million upgrade of the eastern end of Carclew Road is timely with Marrone Fresh expanding its business operations in the area, the works aligning with Council’s aims of stimulating local economic activity.

“This road upgrade is a significant contribution to ongoing economic growth within all parts of our rapidly developing community,” City of Playford Mayor Glenn Docherty said.

“We continue to develop our road networks across the City with the aim of supporting our farmers to grow their businesses and create jobs for our residents.” ^^ The intersection of Tozer and Ryan roads, for which City of Playford is seeking Black Spot Program funding. Photo: Rob McLean
