Last week I was able to go on a guided tour of the Oaklands Crossing Project and receive a close up look at the impressive sunken station and Morphett Road bridge. The PTPA staff were extremely knowledgeable and have a great understanding of every little moving part which makes up the project. Please scroll down to see more photos taken during my time on site.
As we move in to March we will now see more roadworks (including night works) along Dunrobin, Diagonal and Morphett Roads. These works will include the installation of underground traffic signals and road lighting conduits in preparation for the new signalised Dunrobin / Diagonal intersection. This part of the project is due to be completed by the end of April.Read more

Whilst January is often the time of year when everyone takes some time out to relax, enjoy the sun and rev themselves up for the start of another year, it is one of the busiest and best times in our local community. With the official openings of both the Brighton Surf Lifesaving Club Tower and Brighton Jetty Sculptures Exhibition, and being able to witness the record breaking ‘Marilyn’s’ as part of the Brighton Jetty Classic, I have been spending some wonderful times down by the beach.Read more
I was honoured to speak at the City of Holdfast Bay Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony at Glenelg Foreshore recently.
With clear skies and a fantastic view, it was a perfect day to meet and celebrate with the 80 new Australian Citizens from my local community. With residents coming from all around the world, including China, Germany, India and the United Kingdom, it shows just how much of a multicultural nation Australia has become. Since 1945, seven million people have migrated to Australia and one in four Australians were born overseas. Over at the Marion RSL, a further 33 people became Australian Citizens and were warmly congratulated by my State and Federal colleagues, Nicolle Flint MP, the Hon David Speirs MP and Stephen Patterson MP.Read more
