Good news for travellers coming through Bordertown! 

A much greater number of parking spaces will soon be made available when the Tatiara District Council’s redevelopments on the Shell depot area are complete.

A vast parking area for caravans, cars and motor homes is currently being developed in order to accommodate the overflow of parked vehicles in Tolmer Park.

Throughout the past 12 months, Tatiara District Council obtained the lease of the Shell depot area and has since cleared out trees, bushes and shrubs in the area.

Rotary Club of Bordertown president Rose Milton told the Chronicle that local Rotarians have been working hard, and are helping with the demolition process in order to cut development costs.

“The new Shell depot carpark will encourage more vehicles to stop for longer periods and give more business to shopkeepers in the town,” she said.

“We have had two working bees – money has been saved from the council budget by Rotarians carrying out the demolition work.”

Rose said the Rotarians’ work was part of a volunteer service project for the local community.

During the working bees, Rotarians removed the old galvanised fence and removed cemented metal posts.

“The removal of the old galvanised fence was a huge change to the landscape,” Rose said.

“Clayton Farm has been given the galvanised iron for developing projects.”

Rose said there were many other areas in the vicinity with the potential for Rotarians to provide exciting and useful development for locals and travellers.

Rotary clubs throughout the world participate in local, national and international projects.
