       REPORT

       Airport Road is increasingly being used as a heavy vehicle freight route, with the
       increases of unauthorized B-Double usage. The road has been identified as a
       strategic heavy freight haulage route which is supported by both Alexandrina
       Council and the Southern & Hills LGA Transport Plan.

       With the region growing in population there is more demand for light industry
       requiring regular supply of materials to service the community needs at a higher
       level. Funding of $1,000.000.00 has been granted by the LGA Special Local
       Roads Program.

       As part of the upgrade to the road, the road will be required to be realigned in 4
       different locations along the 7.5km route. This will involve a number of land
       acquisitions from landowners along Airport Road, Council has engaged Maloney
       Field Services in providing technical support in negotiations with land
       acquisitions and calculation of land values.

       Curve 1 is at the Middleton end of Airport Road and Council requires 0.8Ha of
       land to increase the current curve radius from 180 metres to 320 metres (speed
       design from 60 to 95km/hr). This section of land located at Lot 11 Airport Road,
       Section P2242, Certificate of Title 5982/155 is owned by RH & JB Noble. This
       will improve the roads alignment to increase road safety for all road users.

       Alexandrina Council through Maloney Field Services, has negotiated a purchase
       price of $30,000.00 to RH & JB Noble for the purchase of land at Lot 11 Airport
       Road, Middleton, Section P2242, Certificate of Title 5982/155. RH & JB Noble
       have accepted this offer on the provision that Council will pay for all costs
       associated with the land transfer and the realignment of fencing.
                                                                             …cont’d
