The Kingston SE Main Streets Stimulus Project was officially opened by the Member for Barker Tony Pasin MP on Wednesday 15 December.
Member for Barker Tony Pasin said the $1,834,149 Kingston SE Main Streets Stimulus Project was supported by the Federal Government via a funding grant of $668,500 from the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.
“The Kingston SE Main Streets Stimulus Project has revitalised Kingston SE’s three main streets, to create a unified, greener, safer and more accessible precinct.”
“The project has created a vibrant, inviting and accessible area for local businesses, the local community and tourists.”
The key activities undertaken to unite the streetscapes of Agnes, Holland and Hanson Streets in Kingston included:
“This project delivered economic benefits through the use of local suppliers and contractors and delivered important employment outcomes, supporting four jobs during the construction.” Mr Pasin said.
Kingston District Council Mayor Kay Rasheed said the Kingston Main Streets Stimulus Project has certainly lived up to its intent of becoming safer, greener and more accessible.
“I have been delighted with the elevated amount of positivity around how wonderful Kingston is looking, from both locals and new and returning visitors. The Kingston Main Streets Stimulus Project has been the driving contributor for this feedback.” Mayor Rasheed said.
“This project would not have been possible without the support of our funding partners – Building Better Regions Fund, Regional Growth Fund and People for Places – all of whom we are extremely grateful for.” Mayor Rasheed said.
Kingston Main Streets Stimulus Project was a joint project between Federal Government ($668,500), South Australian Government ($668,500) and Kingston District Council ($497,149).
