The Federal Government has approved funding of $2,328,517 towards Naracoorte Lucindale Council projects as part of the $1.5 billion Local Road and Community Infrastructure Program, which is supporting local jobs, businesses and boosting the economy.

Federal Member for Barker, Tony Pasin, said getting shovels in the ground on local construction projects is important for maintaining jobs and economic growth, particularly as we deal with the economic crisis created by the coronavirus.

“I am so pleased that Federal Government funding can support these worthwhile projects for the Naracoorte Lucindale Council region.”

“Every single project we support makes a huge difference in our local community, that is why we have moved quickly to approve funding.”

The Local Road and Community Infrastructure Program funding will enable Naracoorte Lucindale Council to undertake projects to deliver community facility and infrastructure developments and upgrades throughout the council area.

“We know how important these developments and upgrades are for our communities because we recognise the social and community benefits that come from increased activity as well as keeping our communities a safe place to live.” Mr Pasin said.

Those living in the coastal township of Naracoorte are set to benefit from a new skate bowl and pump track at the Naracoorte Market Square Recreation Area.

Mr Pasin who opened the new skate bowl on Monday 17 May, said he was pleased the Federal Government was able to deliver funding of $215,000 via the Local Road and Community Infrastructure Program towards this council led project.

“It’s fantastic to see the completion of the new skate bowl and pump track for the local community and visitors to enjoy.”

The latest works form part of the implementation of the Market Square Masterplan, which has included shade structures over the playground, an improved path network, the establishment of a carpark to include long-vehicle carparking, playground soft-flooring upgrades, additional shelters and picnic furniture, the installation of a dog park and landscaping.

Naracoorte Lucindale Council, Erka Vickery, said the latest works on the Naracoorte Market Square Recreation Area have further developed this significant recreation precinct into one we’re very proud of.

“It has become a much-loved area for locals and visitors alike, with something for everyone.”
