Member for Goyder Steven Griffiths welcomed the pledge made yesterday by State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall MP of a $12.1 million investment to build an overpass at Port Wakefield, to end traffic bottlenecks and reduce road accidents at the notorious Copper Coast Highway and Augusta Highway intersection.
"I was very pleased with the announcement as it is one of many projects I have worked hard to progress in recent years, with both the Liberal Party and the Labor Government. Indeed, I hope it is the first of many such investments for our region," Mr Griffiths said.
Country SA Primary Health Network (CSAPHN) was very pleased to late last year be announced as one of 12 new National Suicide Prevention Trial (NSPT) sites, bringing significant resources, activity and funding to areas of need in regional South Australia.
The two-year trial now underway is targeting populations identified at a local level as "at risk", and to help get a good picture of the needs across the State, a series of Regional Suicide Prevention forums are being held -- including one at Minlaton on 31 January.
If elected in March 2018, a Marshall Liberal Government will reform South Australia's Marine Scale Fish industry to unlock the industry's potential and provide long term sustainability.
In making the announcement today, Shadow Minister for Primary Industries David Ridgway said there is broad consensus across the commercial and recreational sectors that the Marine Scale Fish industry needs reform.
I welcome the release today by State Liberal Leader Steven Marshall of "Recharging Our Regions", a billion dollar package to create regional jobs and drive regional investment.
A Marshall Liberal Government will deliver "Recharging Our Regions" to create regional jobs, increase investment in regional infrastructure, drive down the cost of living and improve frontline services.
The health forum at Wallaroo on 30 October again highlighted the level of concern that is felt for the future of rural health services, and a rising mistrust for a city-centric government seemingly blind to the fact that country people are equally deserving of quality care.
To celebrate the important role community halls play in regional towns, registrations are now open in South Australia for the opportunity to join a national project, "Home is Where the Hall is".
The project is running throughout November, and this is the third year "Home Is Where the Hall Is" will be rolled out in SA, in a partnership between Country Arts SA and Regional Arts Victoria.
