25 January: Council welcomes Bridge Renewal funding for Lima South  Printer Friendly


The Council has welcomed a Federal Government Bridges Renewal Program grant of $320,000 towards the $710,000 upgrade of Williams Road Bridge in Lima South, which services the Lima South Quarry (LS Quarry).

The work will include strengthening works, replacing the overlay and upgrading the guard rail, and address fatigue cracking which would otherwise require a reduced load limit.

“LS Quarry trucks from 1,500 to 3,000 tonnes of crushed rock products per week, with up to 90 truck loads per day,” said Mayor Cr Justin King.

“The business has significant annual turnover with predicted growth rates of 10 to 15%, and it provides employment for 26 locals and 23 subcontractors. This work will protect the access for the necessary heavy vehicles to continue carrying out the business’ activities. It will also make the bridge safer for all users,” he said.

“The bridge services four properties as well as LS Quarry, and also provides emergency service access, with no detours available.

“We are very pleased to have received this grant as a result of the Council’s application. This is another example of how the Council is working hard to attract funding for local people and businesses.”

Managing Director of Lima South Quarry Mr Ashley Day said: “I commend the Council on its support for local business and employment for their visionary approach to this project”.
