In an exciting collaboration between EyrePlus, Ceduna Aboriginal Corporation (CAC), and the District Council of Ceduna, the weathered street names and house numbers decorating the gutters of Ceduna and Thevenard are set to receive an incredible rejuvenation. 

This project, which commenced in April 2024, utilises the pivotal partnerships EyrePlus maintains in delivering the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations’ Remote Community Pilot (RCP) Program 2021-2024, and the National Indigenous Australians Agency’s Community Development Program: Community Projects (CDP).

Under EyrePlus’s forward-thinking leadership, all essential resources for the repainting process have been supplied, including Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for workers. CAC will organise the workforce and transport resources under CDP: Community Projects, while the District Council of Ceduna will provide supervision and work zone safety procedures to ensure the project’s efficiency, and the safety of everyone involved.

This ambitious initiative pledges to elevate the aesthetic appeal of the area, and significantly enhance navigation and safety for residents, visitors, and crucially, emergency services personnel. By implementing clear, visible, and comprehensible markings, the streets will become more navigable and accessible than ever before.

Operating diligently from Monday to Thursday, each CAC participant will commit 20 hours per week to progress this project. With the project underway from April 2024, the stage is set for Ceduna and Thevenard’s remarkable transformation. 

Mark McDonald, Council Manager of Assets and Infrastructure, has hinted at further opportunities on the horizon, highlighting the potential for additional community benefits as this partnership and the Street Scapes Project progress and surpass their objectives. 

Individually and through the partnership with Ceduna Aboriginal Corporation, and the District Council of Ceduna, EyrePlus remains committed to supporting the development of the Ceduna community and its people. We will continue to work collaboratively to see the Street Scapes Project, and initiatives like it come to life.
