The newly upgraded Jetty Road in Largs Bay is now a more welcoming place for locals and visitors alike.
Wider footpaths allow for safer pedestrian access, as well as future outdoor dining for nearby businesses. We’ve lowered the kerbing, installed new ramps and upgraded pedestrian crossings, to help improve accessibility in the area.
Safety has also been improved with better and brighter street lighting. The road has been resurfaced with improved parking right along the street. We’ve also planted new verges, trees and grass to improve the streetscape.
To complete the project, there are some fantastic new sculptures along the footpath by SA artist Quentin Gore, who worked with the local community to create vessel-shaped granite forms and wooden figures which celebrate the rich cultural diversity of the area. The sculptures feature text developed by our Aboriginal Advisory Panel member Mickey O’ Brien.
This will deliver long-term community and economic development outcomes for Largs Bay businesses and residents and create spaces to be enjoyed.
