$10m Roseworthy research
facility nears completion
ROSEWORTHY'S $10 million, state-
of-the-art, grain research facility is on
track for completion in the first quarter
of this year.
Recent photos taken from above show
the sheer scale of the new facility, which
is set to become the new national logis-
tics hub for the country's largest and
market-leading wheat-breeding company,
Australian Grain Technologies (AGT).
As previously reported in The Buny-
ip, the development, located near Leitch
and Flett roads, entails a laboratory and
administration building, machinery shed,
four-hectare bird enclosure, glasshouse,
11-hectare demonstration and agronomy
block, and 13-hectare plant nursery.
When complete, it will be one of the
largest and well-equipped breeding centres
in the world, and the most cutting-edge in
AGT has been located at the Universi-
ty of Adelaide's Roseworthy campus for
around 15 years, with the site for its new
national logistics hub chosen due to its
close proximity to its current home.

not a link road
STATE Transport and Infrastructure Min-
ister Stephen Mullighan has watered down
a Gawler councillor's concerns about the
Gawler East link road's (GELR) northern
In a personal letter that he distributed to
residents, Gawler Councillor Paul Koch said
the State Government "pressured" council
last month to renege on its original Ecker-
man route and endorse the government's
own 'DPTI' alignment.
He also stated there were some issues
around the connection point of the GELR to
Calton Road, adjacent Phillips Avenue, and
it was not clear what level of traffic could be
expected in the area.
Cr Koch was one of three councillors who
voted against changing the alignment at
council's December 5 meeting.
Mr Mullighan responded to the letter yes-
terday, saying the issues raised were "rela-
tively minor" and would not impact on the
GELR's current DPTI alignment.
"This issue with how the link road will in-
tersect with Calton Road at the north is rela-
tively minor, it is about intersection design
and it is not a fundamental issue about how
the road is aligned and whether there needs to
be substantial changes," he said.
"My understanding is that council staff is
aware of those and they believe that they're
easily addressed, so I don't think it is going
to be a show-stopper."
Mr Mullighan said the concerns would not
delay the project further, however highlight-
ed that the development has taken far longer
"I'm the first to admit that the government
did need to apply some pressure to the coun-
cil after what had been two and a half years
of frustration and delay," he said.
"This is $55 million that the government
was offering to pay for a road completely, to
provide what would be a council road, and to
gift it to the council.
"I can't think of another council in South
Australia that would look a gift-horse in the
mouth in that way.
"At some stages, we've had some council-
lors who have been perhaps insistent that the
solution that council officers, and the gov-
ernment officers, were working on should
be disbanded and an alternative should be
Gawler Mayor Karen Redman also re-
sponded to the northern end concerns, but
said she would not comment on Cr Koch's
"There are various aspects of the design
of the Gawler East link road that need to be
finalised as part of the design development;
one such aspect is its interface with existing
roadways at Potts Road and Calton Road, re-
spectively," she said.
"There are some more recent concerns
raised by some elected members, and the
community, regarding the northern connec-
tion of the Gawler East link road at Calton
"These concerns will be further considered
in the context of finalising the design, which
includes consulting with the broader commu-
nity in the coming months on key aspects of
the overall design."
Mr Mullighan confirmed the GELR proj-
ect is out for tender, with the successful ten-
derer expected to be announced either before,
or just after, the March state election.
A special meeting, although not yet con-
firmed, could be held next Thursday, January
18, to further discuss the GELR's potential
northern end issues.
