Labor funding promise for Jetty Road, Glenelg

Tuesday 12 April 2022

Holdfast Bay Mayor Amanda Wilson recently met with Federal Labor leader Anthony Albanese in Moseley Square, Glenelg - along with Premier Peter Malinauskas and Labor candidate for Boothby Louise Miller-Frost.

Mr Albanese took a quick tour of Glenelg while visiting Adelaide earlier this month and announced that a Federal Labor government would contribute $10m to the council's Jetty Road Masterplan.

The recent upgrades of Chapel Plaza and Bouchee Walk were part of stage one of the masterplan and the next stage will focus on Jetty Road from Colley Terrace to Partridge Street.

Mayor Wilson welcomed the funding pledge 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.

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

“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.”

Stage 1 of the Jetty Road Masterplan – which saw the 2021 completion of Chapel Plaza and significant upgrades to Bouchee Walk – was funded by the City of Holdfast Bay along with a $1.8 million State Government grant.
