Golden Grove Road landscaping plans with additional grant funding
Published on 22 November 2021
Following on from previous stage of revegetation works around the Hancock Road Roundabout in early 2021, the remaining roadside areas between Kunzea Way and One Tree Hill Road on Golden Grove Road are now being revegetated.
Both stages of the project are funded by the $125,000 Greener Neighbourhoods grant from the Department of Environment and Water and the state’s earlier contribution of $158,442 from the Department for Infrastructure and Transport. The remaining $66,558 of the $350,000 project is funded by the City of Tea Tree Gully.
The works will include the planting of about 300 trees to help re-establish the Golden Grove Road wildlife corridor and improve amenity.
Over 1,000 native bio-filtration plants will be planted in open swales to improve stormwater quality. New irrigation will be provided where possible utilising Council’s recycled water infrastructure.
Tree species selected will offer habitat for local native wildlife and will eventually help provide shade to footpaths and pedestrians.
The landscaping work has commenced and are expected to be completed by January 2022.
Minor traffic disruptions and speed restrictions are expected while works are underway.
