Additional State Government funding means more landscaping and more trees and shrubs planted - along the upgraded section of Golden Grove Road, between One Tree Hill Road and Kunzea Way (Golden Grove).
The $125,000 Greener Neighbourhoods grant from the Department of Environment and Water builds on the state’s earlier contribution $158,442 from the Department for Infrastructure and Transport. The remaining $66,558 of the $350,000 project is being funded by the City of Tea Tree Gully.
The works will include the planting of about 280 trees to help re-establish the Golden Grove Road wildlife corridor and improve amenity.
About 1,500 native bio-filtration plants will be planted in open swales to improve stormwater quality, 500 low ground covers to be planted on steep embankments for erosion control. 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 works will be completed in three stages:
- Hancock Road Roundabout and surrounds, October to November 2020
- Kunzea Way to Hancock Road, January 2021 to March 2021
- Hancock Road to One Tree Hill Road, March to June 2021.
See a map of the stages below.
Minor traffic disruptions and speed restrictions are expected while works are underway.
