South Australian District Netball Association (SADNA)

Published on September 2019

A COLLABORATIVE approach to solve a long-term local traffic congestion issue has begun with construction works underway on the upgrade to the South Australian District Netball Association (SADNA) car park.

The Marshall Government provided $320,000 to the City of Tea Tree Gully to complete the works which would seal the unsealed car park at the SADNA site, while also constructing two dedicated exit lanes to improve traffic flow.

Approximately 400,000 people flock through the gates at SADNA each year and the current facilities, as well as nearby streets, were under significant pressure due to the amount of people utilising the site.

Member for King Paula Luethen said the upgrade will not only benefit netballers and their families, but also residents living in the vicinity of Atlantis Drive.

“The SADNA site provides a fantastic location for people to participate in netball here in Golden Grove,” she said.

“The association’s president John Adams has such a brilliant vision for the future of this facility and its great to be able to collaborate with the local council to support netballers, both young and old, and their families by providing adequate facilities for the area.

Stage One of the upgrades includes the sealing of the unsealed car park, located near Goldenfields Reserve, as well as the installation of a new dedicated left-hand turn lane onto Atlantis Drive.

While Stage Two, which will commence construction next year, will include a new turning lane to allow traffic to exit the SADNA car park via The Golden Way.

Ms Luethen said this was a major issue for the King electorate prior to the 2018 State Election and she’s glad to be able to deliver on another commitment for the community.

“People told me this was an important infrastructure need in our community and its great to see both the government and local council delivering for the area.”
