With regional development and increased tourism high on Tailem Bend’s agenda, local business and residents question the towns highway appeal.

Feeling that the treated pine post, wire and garden hose barrier fences between lanes on the medium strip on Princes Highway and between the service roads and the Princes Highway are an eye sore, most would like to see the barriers fixed, or better still, replaced with something that will improve Tailem Bend’s highway presence.

Questioning the Department of Planning, Transport & Infrastructure and the Coorong District Council we ask;

Who is responsible for the up keep of these barrier fences?

If barriers were to be replaced, who would have to be contacted?

Given the size of the shrubs on the service roads, are they still necessary? and

What would you recommend to be put in their place?
