New Playgrounds For Karratha Residents

People living in and around Karratha in Western Australia will reap the benefits of the Civic Infrastructure Wellbeing project which is being partly funded through Round Three of the Federal Labor Government’s Regional Development Australia Fund.


The Shire of Roebourne will receive $500,000 for new playgrounds, landscaping, pathways, signage and an exercise circuit in Karratha and surrounding suburbs.
Minister for Regional Development and Local Government, Anthony Albanese said that as the region’s population grew, there would be an increasing community need for high-quality, accessible infrastructure.
“The Shire of Roebourne covers a dispersed, fast-growing region with a young population. It’s important we invest in good community infrastructure to enhance the liveability of the region,” he said.
“The new playgrounds, shade structures and pathways will provide all-weather, accessible and free activities for people of all ages. This will improve opportunities for people to get outdoors, socialise and get active.”
Across Australia, 79 projects are receiving funding under the latest round.
“The latest round of regional funding builds on our record $14 billion for community projects and continues our long-term investment in local communities including in health and hospitals, higher education, the NBN and infrastructure,” Mr Albanese said.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.
