Dilapidated jetties across regional SA are in need of some urgent rehabilitation, so residents can access some of them for the first time in years, councils say.
Port Augusta’s Westside Jetty has been inaccessible since 2017, and sections of its wharf which was built in the 1870s, are also fenced off after falling into disrepair.
20 million dollars over 3 years has been promised for upgrades to boat ramps and jetties, including the 36 which are owned by government and councils.
A state-wide plan exploring maintaining the jetties was due for release in late 2019, but it is still yet to be released.
The government says it’s now expected to be delivered in the coming months.
