A suggestion made at the South Alive public meeting to beautify the entrances to South Invercargill is already being actioned with the planting of the roundabout at Elles Road and Tweed Street.
South Alive Project Coordinator Janette Malcolm said that the Invercargill City Council Parks Department had already started planting the major roundabout with a mixture of annuals, low hedges and shrubs.
“The plantings have a predominantly yellow theme in keeping with the South Alive project colour.”
Ms Malcolm said that during the public discussion forum on Sunday 15 April, attended by 115 South Invercargill residents, key action areas were identified, one of which was to improve the entrances to South Invercargill.
“The planting of this roundabout at the north entrance is a very exciting start to accomplishing our goals in that area,” she said.
NOTE: Members of the media are invited to a photo opportunity at 11am on Monday 23 April on the reserve opposite the Elles Road/Tweed Street roundabout. Members of the South Alive Group will be present, looking at the plantings with Council staff.
