Building works have officially begun at the Renmark Town Centre with the first sod turned today at the Renmark river front site.

‘Project Revive’ aims to transform Renmark’s town centre from a neat functional zone to a captivating centre for recreation, dining and retail.

The project will include construction of a water play area, river viewing deck, public artwork, landscaping, new shelters, furniture and BBQs.

The $3,884,000 project which is stage 1A of larger Urban Design Framework project for the Council now renamed Taylor Riverfront Precinct, was successful in receiving $1.4 million from the Morrison Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.

Representatives from the Renmark Paringa Council and LCS Landscapes (the building contractor) joined Member for Barker Tony Pasin to mark the beginning of construction on the project.

Member for Barker Tony Pasin, who helped to secure the $1.4 million from the Federal Governments said today marked an important mile stone in the project and for the Renmark region.

“Not only is this a fantastic project to benefit local residents but will reinvigorate the tourism industry bringing new life and activity to the town centre,” Mr Pasin said.

“Construction beginning now is also a welcome boost to the economy at a tough time, by supporting local construction jobs,” Mr Pasin said.
