Fantastic result for our community

Thanks to everyone that has supported the campaign over the past few years.

This has been an issue in our community for decades and to finally have a solution is a great outcome and proof that a community campaign, and everyone working together, can deliver a great result.

Yesterday's announcement of a new train underpass to fix Oaklands Crossing involves $95 million dollars from the Federal Liberal Government ($55 million added to the $40 million committed by Federal Member for Boothby Nicolle Flint at last year's election), $74.3 million dollars from the State Government and $5 million from the Marion Council.

Having grown up in Oaklands Park I have been aware of this issue since I was a teenager working at Westfield Marion and like all those who have been constantly delayed at this intersection I feel a sense of achievement that we have helped deliver a solution.

Community support and continued pressure for a solution has resulted in this excellent outcome for the community.

Unemployment in South Australia

Mr WINGARD (Mitchell) (15:20): I rise today to speak on this very dark day. I know that we have been hearing a lot about the shocking treatment of the people at Oakden in the mental health and aged-care facility, and we are all appalled at what is going on there and the mismanagement of this government in dealing with this issue. However, today I rise to speak about the darkness that surrounds our job prospects in South Australia.

South Australian's deserve better and the State Government needs to be doing more to support South Australian businesses grow and employ more people.
