SAP projects announced in Jindabyne - Snowy Mountains Magazine

THE NSW Government have today announced seven projects that will be funded as part of the $196.3 million Snowy Mountains Special Activation Precinct (SAP) master plan. As expected, Jindabyne will acquire a new water treatment plant and upgrades of the sewage treatment plant. No breakdown of the money was provided but these two projects will take up the bulk of the $196.3 funding. In exciting news on the tourism front, the Jindabyne Mountain Bike Adventure Park will be funded. The government have acquired the land on the southern side of the Alpine Way in Jindabyne and will activate the park. The Lake Jindabyne Foreshore has been allocated money for planning only. Actual foreshore works will not be part of this funding. The planning and design will elevate the project to be shovel ready for when future grant money or funding is available. The time frame on actual works commencing is not likely to occur until the next government term when funding can be sourced. Attending the announcement today in Jindabyne were Minister for Agriculture, Regional NSW and Western NSW Tara Moriarty, Member for Monaro Steve Whan, Snowy Monaro Regional Council Mayor Chris Hanna and key members of the Regional Growth NSW Development Corporation. Minister Moriarty said the NSW Government is delivering the projects and providing upgrades of ageing facilities, enhancing year-round tourism, community amenities and housing supply. “These are all practical and sustainable improvements that will make Jindabyne an even better place for residents, workers and visitors,” said Minister Moriarty. Member for Monaro Steve Whan said these projects are an exciting development that will set our community up for the future. “I’m delighted that our Government is starting work on a new water treatment plant to provide year-round safe drinking water for Jindabyne residents, businesses and tourists, which will put an end to the town’s boil water alerts,” said Mr Whan. “The Snowy Mountains are an environmentally sensitive area, so the investment in sewerage treatment and infrastructure is critical and urgent. It will ensure Jindabyne is equipped with the modern facilities it needs to continue to grow and thrive.” Mayor Chris Hanna welcomed the news of the upgraded infrastructure and thanked the state government for their investment and commitment to the SAP. “The critical infrastructure will not only improve amenity and services but improve Jindabyne’s standing as a year-round tourist destination,” said Mayor Hanna. “The Snowy Mountains are renowned for sports tourism, but we’re delighted with the Jindabyne Mountain Bike and Adventure Park investment, which will put Jindabyne on the map as a must visit location for mountain bikers and families seeking excellent downhill trails and modern facilities.”
