Tonight I visited the Seaside Writers and sat in on one of their fantastic fortnightly meetings.
Our meeting was highly engaging and opened with a poetry reading by the group's appointed poet laureate Gill.
It was great to chat with these writers not only about the opportunities they offer new and experienced writers, but also about local issues ranging from infrastructure to hospitality.Read more
Five new positive COVID-19 cases have been detected in South Australia with the cases linked to the Northern Territory outbreak.
To ensure we stay ahead of the highly transmissible Delta variant, new restrictions and recommendations will come into effect later today.
The following restrictions apply in Metropolitan, Barossa, Fleurieu Peninsula, Mt Barker and Adelaide Hills areas in South Australia.
We have reached a critical point in our fight against COVID-19 and it's vital that South Australia takes pre-emptive action to keep our state safe and strong.
Outbreaks of the highly transmissible Delta strain occurring in multiple Australian jurisdictions are putting us at risk.
From midnight tonight, restrictions will be reintroduced in South Australia and reassessed after seven days.

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.Read more
