Heritage sites are set to get an upgrade in Serpentine Jarrahdale if the McGowan government is re-elected this weekend.

Labor candidate for Darling Range, Hugh Jones and Premier Mark McGowan announced a $100,000 commitment to upgrade Serpentine Bridge School and Old Hopeland School Hall.

A total of $50,000 will be delivered to improve disability access at the Serpentine Bridge School by upgrading the deck, installing a ramp and improving connecting footpaths.

Another contribution of $50,000 has been promised for upgrades at the Old Hopeland School Hall, the only Group Settlement School still remaining in the Shire.

The upgrades will include accessibility improvements, pathway upgrades and addressing rainwater tank issues.

Candidate for Darling Range Hugh Jones said the upgrades would ensure it is easier for the public to access these facilities and learn about our community’s rich history.

“‘This commitment will help make these significant sites more accessible and ensure they can continue to be enjoyed for generations to come,” he said.
