International Women’s Day
DPTI staff this week joined with a host of others for a special breakfast to mark International Women’s Day, which is Sunday, 8 March.
The function brought together guest speakers Dr Fiona Kerr and Dr Michelle Perugini to share on the future for women in the innovation and science industries.
I’m proud of DPTI’s role in recognising and valuing women in the workforce, and particularly excited to see more women flourishing in these areas.

The new Northern Connector will open tomorrow morning, bringing about a much anticipated change to traffic flow in Adelaide’s north.
This is a crucial link in the North-South Corridor and will save drivers considerable time while also alleviating congestion and travel time on Port Wakefield Road.
The project has been a great success and everyone involved in it deserves to feel proud of all they have achieved.
The Department's Aboriginal Traineeship Program is a 12-month entry-level employment program that provides young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people a structured introduction to the skills and knowledge to start a rewarding career in the Department and the SA Public Sector.
The 2020 cohort of trainees started their employment here this week with a two-day Induction and have now commenced in their business areas.
The trainees had the opportunity to meet with senior staff as well as receive an introduction to the Department. We welcome this new intake and wish them well as they also commence their off-the-job training through TAFE SA.
Flourishing fauna and flora
DPTI’s Rail Care program has continued to see success, with two recent projects improving the habitats of nearby fauna.
A check on the fauNature wildlife boxes installed along the Belair line showed all have been used in the past 12 months by rosellas, lorikeets, kookaburras and possums. These wildlife boxes were installed on large trees by Laing O’Rourke, at different heights and orientations to suit a range of hollow-dependant Australian fauna. Some recent orientation tweaks are expected to also encourage micro-bats to move in during the coming year.
On the other side of the city, dozens of small butterflies have been spotted around the new Albert Park station gardens. These gardens were designed with City of Charles Sturt architects just six months ago and are already flourishing.

Well done to DPTI staff who chipped in to do their bit for Clean Up Australia Day last weekend.
Engaging with the community and leaving a good impression in every area of what we do is crucial to a positive outcome on our projects.
Than you to the staff from the Flinders Link Project (above) and the Regency to Pym Project (below) for going above and beyond.
