Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (14:39): My question is to the Minister for Local Government, Regional Roads and Veterans Affairs. Will the government upgrade the Murray Bridge to Mannum road? With your leave, sir, and that of the house, I will explain.
Mr PEDERICK: The new Thomas Foods International facility at Murray Bridge is due to open later this year, which will result in a dramatic increase in road freight to the facility.
The Hon. G.G. BROCK (Stuart—Minister for Local Government, Minister for Regional Roads, Minister for Veterans Affairs) (14:39): Thank you to the member for Hammond. Certainly I understand the issue. I have great faith in the Minister for Infrastructure. I will get an answer for the member for Hammond and come back to him as soon as I can. Can I also reinforce the importance and the degree of appreciation I have for Thomas Foods International and the work they do. I will get a definite answer and a time frame for the member for Hammond on what is happening in the area.
