Upgrades coming soon to Virginia’s town centre

The team at Virginia Grove are excited that an $8.88m upgrade to Old Port Wakefield Road is set to commence later this month.

The upgrade will include up to 500 metres of Old Port Wakefield Road from the Virginia Sports Oval to the intersection of Penfield and Sheedy roads – which includes the Virginia Shopping Centre and the V Hotel.


The City of Playford’s Mayor Glenn Docherty said the upgrade would form part of the transformation of the area. “We are building a street that people will want to visit and which the local community can be proud of,” he said.


“Virginia is in the heart of South Australia’s multimillion-dollar market garden industry and rightly deserves a main street to match.”


The upgrade will include a revitalisation of the Gawler Road entry to Virginia, on street, disability and long vehicle parking, more than 70 new trees, wider paths and a new playground at Virginia Institute Park


This upgrade follows the news that the Virginia Shopping Centre has recently changed hands and will also undergo an extensive facelift in the next 12 to 18  months.
