Funding for Foreshore Restoration Announced

South Perth MLA, John McGrath has welcomed a state government grant of $78,475 for essential foreshore restoration works in the Swan Canning Riverpark within the City of South Perth.

The funding will go towards the implementation of the Salter Point Foreshore Restoration Plan using bioengineering techniques, as well as revegetation, shoreline stabilisation and weed control at Milyu Reserve along the Freeway.

Mr McGrath said “The works will be undertaken through partnership arrangements with local and state government agencies and the Swan River Trust’s Riverbank Program to ensure our rivers and shorelines are preserved for generations to come”.

“Foreshore protection and rehabilitation is integral to the Trust’s work and this funding will boost the capacity of land managers to significantly improve shoreline condition,” he said.
