23rd March 2021

The Flinders Ranges Council has been successful in its application for funding to implement the final stages of its streetscape works under the Local Government Infrastructure Partnership Program.

Mayor Greg Flint said this funding secures the completion of the streetscape project.

“Council has been working towards beautifying the towns for some time and this funding cements the finalisation of the streetscape projects. Council was successful in receiving $572,245 from this program.”

At a total of over $1.7 million the project has been funded across various government level funding streams including the National Radioactive Waste Management Facility Community Benefit Program, Local Government Roads and Community Infrastructure program and now this one.  Council has also contributed over $570,000 to secure the works.

“This funding is for the finalisation of much of the streetscape works identified as part of the recently developed masterplans for Hawker and Quorn, including:

  • Creation of a Performing and Visual Arts Precinct in Quorn
  • Development of entry markers and signage at the ‘gateways’ to Hawker and Quorn
  • Reconfiguration and development of key intersections to enhance safe pedestrian access and to enable outdoor dining
  • Development of a walking path, connecting Hawker’s War Memorial and Dog Parks and providing a link the town centre.”

“This latest funding is very exciting news and provides an amazing opportunity to refresh the appearance of Quorn and Hawker.”
