It is brilliant to see Westfield Marion investing in our community and generating new jobs.
This is vital given that our state is in a jobs crisis.
Unfortunately South Australian has the highest unemployment rate of any state in Australia at 7.5%. (Youth unemployment is a staggering 15.7%)
We are even behind Tasmania which has an unemployment rate of 6.5%.
This type of expansion at Westfield Marion however will only add to the traffic congestion in our area.
So hopefully this upgrade of the state's biggest shopping complex will also help the government listen to our push for a solution to Fix the Oaklands Crossing.
