Positive signs for Gifford Hill development

There are positive signs for the stalled Murray Bridge Racing Club Gifford Hill development.

In a meeting with the new Minister responsible for regional South Australia Geoff Brock on Monday, Liberal Member for Hammond, Adrian Pederick, raised the Murray Bridge Racing Club Gifford Hill development.

“I’m very pleased that Minister Brock made the commitment to spend a whole day in Hammond to explore this exciting project and also committed to meeting with the Murray Bridge Racing Club,” said Mr Pederick.

“I am hopeful that Mr Brock will discuss potential funding options with the Weatherill Labor Government to reignite the stalled project.

“During the recent state election campaign, the State Liberals committed $15 million to the development because we understand the importance of this development to the Murraylands regional economy.”

Other issues discussed with Mr Brock at Monday’s meeting included local transport issues and the Tailem Bend Motor Sport Park, but the Murray Bridge Racing Club stalled project remains one of Mr Pederick’s top priorities.

“I was pleased Minister Brock made the effort to visit Hammond during one of his first regional tours in his new Ministerial capacity,” said Mr Pederick.

“As the Member for Hammond, I will continually raise the important issues facing our communities with Mr Brock.

“The State Liberals recognise the importance of our regions and I will continue my fight for development, economic and employment growth in Hammond,” said Mr Pederick
