$22 Million Marine Infrastructure State Government Package
Mayor Brett Benbow stated, “We are ecstatic with this news from the State Government, the Elected Members and I know how much our community misses and utilised our Marine Infrastructure before it was closed off to the public due to deterioration.” “This package is not $ for $ matched, which we are really pleased about, and thankful for.”
John Banks the CEO of Port Augusta City Council stated “I am very grateful for the Marshall Government, Minister Dan van Holst Pellekaan and Minister Corey Wingard for understanding the importance of Port Augusta’s marine infrastructure to the people of Port Augusta. The rejuvenation of the cities marine infrastructure will provide many opportunities to promote and build upon the liveability and lifestyle of Port Augusta for years to come.”
This investment compliments the $20 million committed in the 2020/2021 State Budget for upgrades to boat ramps and jetties right across South Australia.
