With only one more weekend before Christmas, I thought it would be a great time to share some of the achievements that have occurred at the Oaklands Crossing Project over the last few, very busy, months.
Since October we have seen the second traffic switch occur, the installation of the nine “Super-T” beams and deck pour for the eastern side of the Morphett Road Bridge. This means that in the New Year, the project team will be full steam ahead excavating under the bridge ready for the new railway track.Read more
I can’t believe it’s that time of the year again! I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for allowing me to share what is happening in our local community and I look forward to keeping you up to date with what is going on in our local area in 2019.
Wishing you all a happy and safe Christmas and New Year and thank you for your continued support.Read more
Works have continued at the Oaklands Crossing Project over the past couple of months. Whilst this has caused some traffic delays, we appreciate everyone’s patience in navigating the work zone safely.
December 2018 Night Works
Night works will continue throughout December as a number of key activities are undertaken. These include the installation of underground traffic signals, road lighting conduit installations, underground power connections, stobie pole removals and SA Water asset investigation works. Stockpile zones will also be set up at different locations on site for construction crews to access.Read more
Hamilton Park Reserve – Community Consultation
As many of you already know, the State Government has delivered funding in the amount of $180,000 to the City of Marion to construct a new automated toilet block at Hamilton Avenue Reserve.
I am sure you will all agree that this will be a great addition to the Reserve, allowing more people and families in the community an opportunity to enjoy nature in their own backyard. It has also prompted the City of Marion to look at redeveloping this wonderful open space and I urge everyone get along to the Community Consultation being held at the Reserve this Sunday, 2 December 2018 from 4 - 5pm.
Alternatively, if you can’t make it and would like to share your thoughts and ideas on what should happen on the Reserve, head to www.makingmarion.com.au/hamilton-park-reserve.Read more
I’ve had another busy month visiting many schools and congratulating countless members of our community. One of the best things I love about my job is the people I get to meet, and admire what they do within our area. Art has been popping up everywhere recently, with the opening of the Seaview High School Art Exhibition and our Gibson local, Dianne Schroeder, creating her Poppy artwork along the Jetty at Brighton Beach.Read more
The October Long Weekend may have given people the opportunity to get away for the weekend, but for those working on the Oaklands Crossing Project, it was all steam ahead. It was an exciting milestone to see traffic flow over the new Morphett Road Bridge and getting a glimpse at the impressive pedestrian and cyclist bridge when it arrived on site.Read more
During the last month I have been delighted to be out and about in our local community and attending some great events. From hosting another successful Seniors Forum, to catching up with the lovely ladies of the Oaklands VIEW Club at Parliament House and seeing off three very determined (but now very sore) blokes who rode to the MCG in order to raise money for the Pancare Australia.Read more
As works progress at Oaklands Crossing, the Project Team is starting to gear up for the second traffic switch in early October. Following completion of the October Long Weekend works, traffic will be diverted to the western side of the road, so construction can begin on the eastern side of the bridge.Read more
As most of you would know, things have been busy lately as the Government handed down the 2018 budget. It was always going to be a tough job, but I am pleased to say we have delivered a budget which is focused on delivering more jobs, lower costs and better services to South Australians.
There was also good news for our local community, with funds being allocated for a variety of services and upgrades in Gibson and neighbouring electorates.Read more
