Public Works Committee: Waterfall Gully to Mount Lofty Summit Trail Restoration

Motion

I rise to speak to the report of the Waterfall Gully to Mount Lofty Summit Trail Restoration Works Project. I thank members of the Public Works Committee, including of course the new Chair, the member for Kavel. I appreciate the contribution they have made to the parliament. Clearly, they are active and passionate in their work on the Public Works Committee, which personally I think is one of the most important committees that we have in the parliament. They have undertaken their role of scrutinising this project so that it not only be fit for purpose but be of public value and, of course, value for money.
