Libs criticise bus cuts
THE State Liberal Party has accused
Labor of post-election trickery after it an-
nounced several Gawler bus services will
be axed this month.
Sixteen services from 491, 492, 493 and
494 routes, as well as the extension of the 492
route -- the 492W route -- will be cut from the
Gawler service this week.
Shadow Transport Minister Corey Wingard
described the cuts as "devastating" for Gawler
"I have had some correspondence from
people who are disappointed this service has
been cut and...(Gawler-based Liberal MLC)
John Dawkins, he's had a number of people
contact him saying how disappointed they
are," he said.
Mr Wingard claimed the announcement
was delayed until after the election as it could
have generated a different outcome in the seat
"Before the election there was no talk of it
being cut but now, here they are losing their
service," he said.
The Liberals vowed, prior to the election,
to scrap the existing Gawler bus service and
replace it with a new network.
The election promise followed the transport
department committing to undertake a review
of the underutilised Gawler bus network last
Mr Dawkins agreed the service was not used
to its full potential but said "a proper review"
was called for.
"If a proper review was done without sight
of an election looming...then a proper reor-
ganisation of the routes and timetables might
have made a difference," he said.
Member for Light Tony Piccolo refuted the
Opposition's claims, stating changes to the bus
network come as promised, following a service
review announced prior to the election.
"At the recent election, the Liberals provid-
ed no details of what they were going to do, so
it is a bit rich for them to criticise the Govern-
ment," he said.
Mr Piccolo said the changes announced last
week would result in new services, which will
be provided as part of the ongoing review.
"New services will (be) introduced later this
year once the impact of the current changes
are fully considered," he said.
He said the State Government would main-
tain its investment in local transport services.
The bus route and time changes will take
effect from July 20.
GAWLER'S first skin cancer screening weekend
has been hailed a success.
The initiative, run by Lions Club members in part-
nership with Flinders University, saw 161 people at-
tend the Gawler Sport and Recreation Centre over
Saturday and Sunday to be tested for signs of skin
Gawler Lions Club president David Schwartz said
42 people have been referred to their GP following
the weekend's testing.
Mr Schwartz said 79 of all those tested have never
been screened for skin cancer before.
"It's really good that we've at least made people
aware," he said.
Mr Schwartz said everyone should be screened for
skin cancer annually and the success over the week-
end has prompted calls for another testing round
"The club has been extremely rapt in what's hap-
pened," he said.
"Some of them asked me to investigate having it
done next year, that's how keen they are."
The event marked the first time Lions has conduct-
ed the free testing in the northern part of the state,
following its popularity in other parts of the country,
including in Adelaide's south.
The event was also attended by Lions Cancer Insti-
tute chairman Colin Beauchamp, who assisted with
the testing over the weekend.
Mr Beauchamp said the screenings took pressure
off the general practices.
"What we're doing is filtering the system for them,"
Mr Schwartz said the club wanted to thank the
Lions, its partners, as well as Gawler Council for as-
sisting with the event.
The club further notes that all lesions are suspect
until proven otherwise by further medical examina-
