Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

Finally here (as reported recently) the Information Session being put on by DPTI is this Sunday at SASMEE Park, between 11.00am and 3.00pm.

The information Session apparently is going to include the following:

Final Layouts for the tunnel.
Includes a walk thru’ (or should I say ride thru’ Video of the tunnel.
Information on the redesign of the Brownhill Creek
Includes information on the accessing of the Brownhill Creek Culverts of Forestville Reserve
Maps locating the various services and/or service relocations
Traffic Management information for the length of the project in affected local streets
Confirmation of where the 2 (TWO) pedestrian rail crossings will be during the life of the project
Information on vegetation removal or pruning
Answers to the myriad of questions we have had over the last few months
Information on the electrification of the Noarlunga line
Advice from TransAdelaide on alternate transport options during the time of the project.

We have asked that information on the Greenways Cycleway Connection be also available but do not know if it will.

Beyond Sunday it is my understanding that there will be an ongoing “engagement” process from now until thre completion of the project by way of a regular newsletter that I trust will get to appropriate households and business, sporting clubs etc.

And our General Manager, Assets & Infrastructure will be attending a fortnightly meeting at DPTI to ensure we are kept up to date with the project as it develops, and I will keep you informed of whatever he may pass onto me.
It appears that the level of communication from DPTI is going to improve dramatically, meaning on going logistical or other concerns you may have shoudl be dealt with expeditioulsy and with empathy. Don’t forget of course that if this proves not to be the case you will still have Jennie & I to go to bat for you.
