Message from the Chief Executive
In the video above I talk about the recently announced North-South Corridor project and the delivery of the state’s first ‘mega-project’.
For more information about the North-South Corridor Project.

Responding to COVID-19 cluster
Thank you to everyone for your efforts last week as we navigated through the ‘circuit-breaker’ in response to the latest COVID-19 cluster.
Particular thanks to our frontline staff who continued to deliver our much-needed essential services during this time.
This week we have returned to our previous working arrangements. As always, we will continue to monitor the situation and act in accordance with the Directions provided by the State Coordinator and Chief Public Health Officer.
Augmenting reality at R2P
The R2P Project survey team is using augmented reality software, Trimble Site Vision, to provide greater insight and understanding of the project site.
The software enables the survey team to create, place and view georeferenced virtual 3D models via a smart phone from various angles at real scale, above and below ground. The software has hi-tech measuring systems and allows surveyors to take photos, record measurements and notes in real-time. The application of this technology allowed an R2P site supervisor to “walk through” the design at Pedder Crescent to see where amenities should be placed without needing a surveyor on site.
Well done to the R2P team for implementing this great project solution.
Making public transport easier for schools
When your school is serviced by 17 school buses, five regular Adelaide Metro buses and four different bus stops, the range of options can feel a little overwhelming. That’s why, over the past four years, Mitcham Girls’ High School has enlisted Adelaide Metro Customer Care to be part of their annual information days for students transitioning from primary to high school.
Our Customer Care team members offer new school families tailored advice about travel, including which bus to catch, how to buy and register a Student metroCARD, setting up Auto recharge and how to save money with a 14-day or 28-day pass.
This service has also been adapted to be COVID-safe, providing the same great service for the School via two highly successful online sessions. As a result, SAPTA is now exploring the potential to promote similar sessions to other schools and institutions.

Well done to the Mo Growers Club
As Movember nears the end for 2020 a big congratulations goes to our ‘Department Mo Growers Club’ and other staff who have grown a mo or supported those who were growing one to shine a light on men’s health.
The Department Mo Grower’s Club has already raised close to $1000.

Live safe boating this weekend
The hot weather we are experiencing today and expecting over the weekend is definitely heralding summer.
I am sure many of you may be planning a day on the water so it is timely that we stop and remember some important boating safety tips before we head out.
Live safe boating this summer by following these seven simple steps; know the limits of your vessel, service your boat before going out, pack the right safety equipment, check the weather conditions, plan your trip and let someone know before you go, learn the rules of boating that keep us all safe and wear your lifejacket.
Visit the On Deck website for more safety tips and information.
International Day of People with Disability
Next Thursday, 3 December is International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) and I encourage you to watch the Department of Social Services video that challenges us to ‘see the ability in disability’.

Leading by example to promote diversity
Our Language and Culture Community of Practice team has been nominated for the 2020 Governor's Multicultural Awards in the Public Sector Award category.
Leading by example our team promotes the importance of cultural diversity in our workplace, creating events and opportunity for all DIT employees to be involved and further understand not only multiculturalism, but all diversity.
These are important awards that celebrate the contributions of South Australians who promote multiculturalism and increase understanding of the benefits of cultural diversity in our community.
There were many nominations received for this year's awards by the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, and so it is without question a great achievement for this team and our department to be acknowledged and I congratulate you all.
The winners will be announced in early 2021.
The below photo, from around 1944, shows a queue of people boarding a tram in Victoria Square for the Morphettville races.
The queue system was initiated at various loading points in Adelaide for trams and trolley buses early in 1944. According to an Advertiser article published on 3 January 1944, the queue system was originally supervised but they expected that “crowds will be quick to control the queues themselves when there was no official supervision”.
