The current access road to Springs Wetland will be upgraded.

Complete

Construction of the access road has now been completed, providing a formed road from Springs Road to the Wastewater Treatment Plant, a rubble road section to the Springs Wetland car park and an asphalt pick up drop/off car park for St Francis de Sales College.

The pick up/drop off car park for St Francis de Sales College will provide an alternative to ease congestion on Dutton Road.  Council acknowledges the financial contribution from the College to the project.

The construction of the Springs Wetland was successfully completed in mid 2015.  Planting is continuing to provide new habitats to support a range of local bird spices, lizards and other creatures that are attracted to a wetland environment.

 

Background

The construction of the Springs Wetland was successfully completed in mid 2015.  The wetland is located off Springs Road, Mount Barker adjacent to the St Francis de Sales school and Council’s Mount Barker Wastewater Treatment Plant.

Planting is continuing to provide new habitats to support a range of local bird spices, lizards and other creatures that are attracted to a wetland environment.

The current access road to the wetland will be upgraded with construction scheduled to commence the week of 21 March 2016.  Construction will include upgrading the existing unformed road, a car park at the wetland and a pick/up drop off car pack for St Francis de Sales College.  Completion is expected by June 2016, weather permitting.

During the construction period, the access road will be closed to vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians for the safety of the community and workers.  The wetland can be accessed via the Linear Trail.
