SA Bushfire Appeal
For those who want to help bushfire victims financially, a central SA Bushfire Appeal has been established as the primary point for donations in South Australia.
The South Australian Government’s SA Bushfire Appeal is raising funds for people directly affected by bushfires on Kangaroo Island and in Cudlee Creek. Every dollar donated to the appeal goes directly to those impacted by the fires, with the government absorbing all administration costs.
Tour Down Under
With the Tour Down Under rolling into town this weekend, DPTI is actively educating road users through the important Think! Road Safety and the Be Safe, Be Seen messages.
A giant inflatable ‘Think! Road Safety’ bike has been installed in Victoria Square and a Be Safe and Be Seen branded tour car will travel ahead of the riders, with crews handing out goodies to highlight the two safety messages. There will also be road safety activities at the Tour Village.
Other teams have been working to prepare sites and road closures for the event, with the team at Murray Bridge already receiving official recognition from TDU organisers, who expressed thanks for the great work they’ve done.
Bridging the gap
The new Flinders Link Project is quickly taking shape, with two more steel bridge girders recently installed over the Southern Expressway lowered motorway.
Congratulations to the team on achieving another significant milestone.
In the bag
DPTI’s Christmas contribution to the “It’s in the Bag” Share the Dignity campaign was even more successful than the August campaign.
There were 51 bags donated, which included about 25 products per bag. The total number reached 1430, which was an increase of more than 1000 on August.
The aim was to provide personal care and sanitary items for distribution to women in South Australian shelters and refuges, and contributions came from teams at 77 Grenfell Street, Mile End, Seaford Heights, Flinders Street and Roma Mitchell House.
This week’s Friday Flashback is a very nostalgic video of photos from the old Magic Mountain at Glenelg. Be warned, it may bring back memories!
