I'm getting in touch to let you know after weighing up expert advice and following extensive community consultation the Hove Level Crossing Removal Project will not be proceeding. Instead the Marshall Liberal Government will now focus on a Ten Year Level Crossing Removal Program that will prioritise and identify the highest priority level crossings for removal.
The detailed analysis of both the rail-over and rail-under design options found the least costly of the two would be around $120 million more than the available budget.
The current budget allocation of $171 million is inadequate to remove the level crossing with the rail-over option estimated to cost $290 million and the rail-under cost estimated to cost $450 million.Read more
Wondering when it’s your turn to get the COVID-19 vaccine?

A longstanding ban on dancing at South Australia’s pubs and clubs will be lifted from Friday 26 February 2021 but with some restrictions, while the state will also remove its remaining border restrictions with Victoria.
From one minute past midnight on Friday, small licensed venues with 200 or fewer people can allow dancing, as long as patrons check-in using QR codes and maintain a distance of one person per two-square-metres. Dancing will also be allowed at larger venues of between 200 to 1000 people, so long as only 50 people dance at one time in a designated area such as on a dance floor.Read more
On Monday, the TGA granted provisional approval for the Pfizer/BioNtech COVID-19 vaccine for use in Australia.

I want to start by sincerely thanking you for your understanding and cooperation during our community pause.
By banding together, it has provided our hard-working contact tracing team vital time to not only tackle the Parafield Cluster, but also avoid further community transmission.
With the information available at the time of the outbreak, the unequivocal health advice from our Chief Public Health Officer was clear; we needed a circuit breaker to stay ahead of the coronavirus pandemic. However, we have since learnt that someone deliberately misled our contact tracing team.Read more
On the advice of SA Health, from midnight tonight, South Australia will be on a 6 day pause with the introduction of new restrictions to get ahead of the Parafield Cluster.
This means all non-essential workers must stay home and only leave when necessary, such as for groceries and medical supplies.
These measures are being taken to reduce community transmission and avoid the long lockdown we saw in Victoria recently.Read more
