The Rutherglen Economic Revitalisation Project will upgrade and link three key precincts, including Lake King, Hopetoun Road and Main Street in Rutherglen with flow-on benefits to the region's cyclists, pedestrians and recreation vehicle users.
The $1.834 million project for infrastructure improvements has been divided into three key precincts;
- Rutherglen Main Street (streetscape works, footpath extension to Drummond Street and connectivity pathways in Bowling Green Lane)
- Hopetoun Road (sealing of road from Murray Valley Highway to Wine Bottle, construction of shared pathway along Hopetoun Road and enhancement of the Wine Bottle precinct)
- Lake King (dam safety and landscaping works leading to the overall enhancement of the Lake King recreational area, including improvements to internal pathways and connections to the town centre.)
The two-year project will benefit local residents, businesses & visitors alike. It is estimated that the project will generate 25 jobs during construction, and 29 jobs ongoing.
