Our recently concluded Goulburn Conference has received great feedback from delegates. As we know it was our first in-person meeting in over a year and the camaraderie and conversation was just excellent to see.
SEATS Priority Projects are steadily coming to fruition as more government infrastructure funding gets announced impacting the South Coast. Quick snapshot from Greg Pullen (Shoalhaven):
- Jervis Bay Rd intersection – $100m ($125m total project)
- Jervis Bay Rd to Sussex Inlet Rd – Stage 1 – $400m ($500m total project)
- Far North Collector Rd Network, Nowra – $19m/$32.8m ($92.8m total project)
- Mt Ousley Interchange $240m
- Appin Rd $18m/$68m – ($68m total project)
SEATS are also following through on EV Charging Infrastructure as a resolution was passed in support of this advocacy.
Of keen interest to delegates was the discussion on “Active Transport” and many of us concurred that the natural growth in domestic tourism due to international flight restrictions should enable infrastructure development in rail trails, hiking tracks, cycle lanes and walking tracks.
Thank you to all who attended and we look forward to welcoming you in South Gippsland 19th and 20th August 2021 for the SEATS AGM and SEATS Quarterly Conference.
