Media Release: $1 million for Adelaide Hills and Mount Barker roads

Over $1 million has been provided by the Australian Government to improve Adelaide Hills and Mount Barker roads.

Senator for South Australia Anne Ruston said motorists will welcome the undertaking, which will commence in the coming month.

“We all want less congestion on our roads and safer traffic conditions,” Senator Ruston said.

“The Australian Government is committed to improving local infrastructure throughout South Australia, under the Roads to Recovery program.

“This is a great example of different tiers of government working together to deliver tangible outcomes for their constituency.”
