POTENTIAL FENCING UPGRADES AT LOCAL AIRFIELD

Renmark airport

The Renmark-Paringa Council is set to look at ways of improving fencing around the Renmark airport in an effort to decrease the risk of wildlife entering the airfield.

Council have said the most appropriate solution identified is to replace the electric fence with mesh that would be laid at the base of the existing fence that would provide a more robust barrier preventing wildlife entering the airfield.

The airport provides a vital link for the region, with the Royal Flying Doctor Service using the facility up to 3 times per day.

Council is set to seek funding through the Regional Aviation Fund to fund a part of the near $40,000 project.
