Visitor centre without parking is like a pub with no beer

2583 Onkaparinga 2 SM

 

 

Veteran tourism operator in The Centre, Trevor Shiell, says Alice should take a leaf from Onkaparinga's book and move our visitor centre to the "welcome rock" near the Adelaide turn-off. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.

A car wreck's tale of bureaucratic incompetence

 

Does anyone know the meaning of “common sense”?
The reason for this query is due to a rather odd situation that has developed – still ongoing – in a parking bay adjacent to the L’il Antz childcare centre at the corner of Undoolya Road and Sturt Terrace; and which is also just down the laneway from where I live.
It transpires that late on Thursday, May 3, a police patrol pulled over an unroadworthy vehicle driving south along Sturt Terrace. There’s no dispute on this point, as the offending vehicle is in an appalling state and clearly unfit to be driven on the streets.
Unfortunately it was pulled up in the parking bay next to L’il Antz, where many parents drop off and collect their children each working day.
Initially that might not have been too much of a problem if, say, the offending car was parked there for a day while arrangements were made to tow it away. But that's only the start of the story told by ALEX NELSON.
