Further updates on Hove Crossing

Dear Resident,

Given your interest in the Hove Level Crossing Removal Project, I wanted to give you an update and clear up some misinformation that has been circulating in our local community.

Firstly, let me be really clear... no decision has been made on which solution is best for this problem nor has procurement commenced for the design and construction for the project.

As you’d be aware, grade separations of road and rail are a key safety focus of the National Rail Safety Regulator and as such we have been looking at how we can make this crossing and its surrounds safer. In February 2021 Infrastructure Australia (IA) released the Infrastructure Priority List which included “Adelaide Level crossings congestion and safety” priority initiative that identifies the priority for removal through Grade separation.

The Hove Level Crossing has around 35,000 vehicles through it each day and the boom gates are down around 20% of the time during the peak. With development and a growing population along the coast these numbers are only predicted to increase.

A longstanding ban on dancing at South Australia’s pubs and clubs will be lifted from Friday 26 February 2021 but with some restrictions, while the state will also remove its remaining border restrictions with Victoria.

From one minute past midnight on Friday, small licensed venues with 200 or fewer people can allow dancing, as long as patrons check-in using QR codes and maintain a distance of one person per two-square-metres. Dancing will also be allowed at larger venues of between 200 to 1000 people, so long as only 50 people dance at one time in a designated area such as on a dance floor.

Reactivating the Repat Health Precinct

On the 11th February 2021, I was able to visit the Repat Hospital, which is currently in Phase Two of the refurbishment and redevelopment plan. The aim of this project is to provide and boost health services for those in the South.

I had the opportunity to tour the new facilities with local Member for Elder, Carolyn Power MP. It was fantastic to see the new developments and how this project has progressed. It is particularly important for those suffering with dementia, as the development includes a state-of-the-art 12 bed specialist facility for patients with this condition requiring short term medical treatment before returning to their homes.
