Why is the existing Aldinga Soldiers War Monument being moved?
The Aldinga Soldiers War Monument is located between Main South Road and Stonehouse Lane, Aldinga. The duplication of Main South Road from Seaford to Sellicks Beach will impact the Aldinga Soldiers’ Monument in its current location.
Why has the location of the Aldinga Sports Park been selected as a new location?
A site for relocation of the memorial was identified as part of Aldinga Sports Park Master Plan.
Will the new location cater for Anzac Day and Remembrance Day services?
Although there is not an RSL located at Aldinga, the space has been designed to accommodate events such as Anzac Day and Remembrance Day services.
When will the relocation works occur?
Removal of the existing soldiers’ monument will occur before construction commences on the duplication of the Aldinga section of Main South Road in the second half of 2022.
How is this project being funded?
The project requires an estimated $450K for construction to commence in 2022, with funding required from numerous sources to commence work in 2022.
Council is seeking at least $300k in external funding, including the Federal Government Department of Veteran’s Affairs “Saluting Their Service” fund.
