Talks held to secure land for passing lanes

Aportion of prime grazing and cropping land at Hatherleigh could be lost if moves to create passing lanes proceed.

According to Rural Roads Minister Geoff Brock, the lanes have been earmarked for the Princes Highway north of Millicent.

Hatherleigh landowners have told The SE Voice that informal talks on the proposed roadworks have already been held with personnel from his Department of Transport and Infrastructure.

There are currently no passing lanes on the 110km stretch of highway between Millicent and Kingston.

Minister Brock has visited the region in recent days and spoke about various roads projects including additional passing lanes at Tantanoola.

He also holds the Veterans Affairs and Local Government portfolios.

“Congratulations to Bob Sandow, President of the Mount Gambier Community RSL, on the 105th Anniversary of the Sub Branch,” Minister Brock said.

“I was honoured to celebrate this milestone at a dinner at the branch on Sunday with RSL members and my parliamentary colleagues, Clare Scriven MLC, Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development, and Troy Bell, Member for Mount Gambier.”

While in the region, Mr Brock called at the Bordertown RSL and the Blue Lake Obedience Dog Club in Mount Gambier.
