Angaston township receives a makeover

The Angaston Community Business Alliance (ACBA) have been busy the past few months, with the installation of brand new brick pavement in Murray Street, Angaston and funding for projects in the town in conjunction with the Barossa Council.

Mr Steve Falland, president of the ACBA, said the Barossa Council has allocated funding in their general budget for footpath renewals and town streetscape, in the townships of Angaston and Mount Pleasant in particular.

“We want uniformity and consistency in how the paths are treated, rather than having 3 or 4 different types of paving,” said Steve.

“This will mainly be throughout the main street of Angaston.”

To Steve, it’s a long term programme of footpath renewal, with only about 10% completed in the current programme with more to come this financial year.

“It’s going to happen in stages, as the Council allocate funds on an ongoing basis,” he said.

The main reasons behind the footpath renewals were to decrease tripping hazards caused by concrete lifting and cracking on paths, and that the ACBA wants to maintain a consistent approach to the streetscape.

Not only this, but the Angaston main street has had issues with root management for big trees.

The installation of new brick paving allows for ongoing tree root maintenance, with the ability to repair problem areas in a short time.
