NPSP allocates additional funds for line-marking program
At its meeting on Monday 5 February, the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters allocated additional funding of up to $170,000 for its line-marking program in a bid to reduce the project timeline from up to five years, to two years.
Mayor Robert Bria said the funds would be allocated in the current financial year and will bring forward line-marking works in the suburbs of Evandale, Heathpool, Kent Town, Marryatville, Maylands and Stepney, originally scheduled for the 2018-2019 financial year.
“There are areas within these suburbs where improvements to line-marking will reduce the potential for confusion of drivers and other road users,” said Mayor Bria.
Mayor Bria said the suburbs listed in the motion were scheduled for completion after similar works in Norwood where the line-marking is almost finished, and would be completed by the end of June, weather permitting.
“It’s in the Council’s best interest to address the deteriorating line-marking in these suburbs sooner rather than later.”
The additional funds and prioritisation of works will result in the line-marking program throughout other parts of the City will being brought forward by 12 months to be included in the 2018-2019 budget.
“The must prioritise this important maintenance work and adequately resource the line-marking program to reduce the projected time-frame of three to five year for completion, to two years,” said Mayor Bria.
