Infrastructure Update

January 2018

Port Augusta City Council works hard to maintain the city infrastructure with the resources available.

The role of Port Augusta City Council Infrastructure staff includes the maintenance and management of the city’s transport, stormwater and wastewater networks.

Our Council boundaries represent approximately 1,200 square kilometres. Our asset strategy covers 194km of sealed roads and 122km of footpaths.
