Funding pledge for Glenelg’s Jetty Road

Monday 9 May 2022

Holdfast Bay Mayor Amanda Wilson met with Prime Minister Scott Morrison at Glenelg recently - along with Liberal candidate for Boothby, Dr Rachel Swift.

Mr Morrison took a quick tour of Moseley Square, Glenelg and announced that a Coalition Government would contribute $10m to Council's Jetty Road Masterplan if it’s returned to office at the upcoming Federal election.

In April, Mayor Wilson met with Federal Labor leader Anthony Albanese and Labor candidate for Boothby Louise Miller-Frost. Labor announced that a Federal Labor government would contribute $10m to the Jetty Road Masterplan.

Mayor Wilson welcomed both funding pledges and said revitalising Jetty Road, Glenelg will boost visitation to the precinct and will help to cement Glenelg’s position as South Australia’s busiest suburban retail strip and premier foreshore tourism destination.

"This is great news for our mainstreet and for our entire area,” Mayor Wilson said.

“The future-proof design and planned upgrades will enable the Jetty Road precinct to maintain its longevity into the next 30 years.

“But investing in infrastructure on this scale is not something the council can do alone, and we need the support of both the State and Federal governments.”

The first stage of the Jetty Road Masterplan - the upgrades of Chapel Plaza and Bouchee Walk - was completed in late 2021 and was funded by the City of Holdfast Bay along with a $1.8 million State Government grant.
