The City of PAE is working with SA Power Networks to underground power along the western section of Jetty Road, Largs Bay between the Esplanade and Military Road. The undergrounding works by SA Power Networks is currently underway and is expected to be completed by December 2019.
This is a great opportunity for the council to undertake a streetscape upgrade of this historically significant road. Our placemaking, engineering and heritage staff have been working with a group of local residents to develop a concept plan which will move into construction in the 2020/21 financial year. This concept includes improved road layout, parking, landscaping, lighting, outdoor dining opportunities, wider footpaths, renewal of the road pavement and the creation of both permanent and temporary public artworks that reflect the area and highlight the history. A draft of the concept plan is available here: Jetty Road Largs Bay Concept Plan(3730 kb)
We have been working with SA Power Networks and local residents during the consultation period for the undergrounding portion of this project, and there will be further information provided on the placemaking aspect of this project soon including an ‘open day’ on Saturday 31st August 2019 between 10am and 1pm for the community to come and inspect the current plans.
If you would like further information please email email@example.com in regards to the placemaking component and firstname.lastname@example.org regarding the design and timing for the works.
