A LOCAL politician is calling on the Department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA) to speed up its processes to control Riverland fruit-fly outbreaks as the crisis continues to create havoc for local growers.
SAFETY measures are being implemented at Paringa’s quarantining facility to minimise the risks of COVID-19 being spread by travelling harvest workers – set to arrive in the Riverland from tomorrow.
OVER three years after it was promised, the 110km/h speed limit on Brown’s Well Highway is only “weeks away” from being reinstated.
RIVERLAND lives are “absolutely at stake” due to ambulance wait times, according to a local paramedic.
LOCAL butchers were “humbled” to receive numerous awards at a regional South Australian competition staged in the Riverland last weekend.
RIVERLANDERS have been advised to strip backyard trees in an effort to stop the spread of fruit fly, after two more local outbreaks were declared last week.
ALL Riverland backyard and commercial fruit growers are required to help eradicate current fruit fly outbreaks from the region, according to a local MP.
RIVERLANDERS will have to wait to receive their COVID-19 vaccinations, despite South Australia’s first doses being administered in Adelaide earlier this week.
