The Barker Electorate

The Division of Barker is an Australian Electoral Division in the south-east of South Australia. The division was established on 2 October 1903, when South Australia’s original single multi-member division was split into seven single-member divisions.

It is named for Collet Barker, an early explorer of the region at the mouth of the Murray River. The 63,886 km² seat currently stretches from Morgan in the north to Port MacDonnell in the south, taking in the Murray Mallee, the Riverland, the Murraylands and most of the Barossa Valley,

I attended the graduation of eNVIsion Limestone Coast’s Venture Dorm Pre-Accelerator program last night.

Tony Pasin MP can it be looked into providing daily transport from the town centre out to the site? Working in the employment industry we see the impact of having no licence (for what ever reason) and it is a huge issue for many in Murray Bridge.

Be interesting to see how many unemployed people will want to work there.

Sensational news

Great news.

Get drivers to travel with their car lights on and all bike riders with high visibility clothing would be a great help to improve road safety

Sad that we have already lost people this morning to car accidents.

🚧 Bridge closures are planned for tomorrow and Thursday. 🚧🌁🚧 Aging gracefully! To maintain the longevity of the 140-year-old Old Murray Bridge, SA Planning, Transport and Infrastructure needs to undertake essential maintenance works this week.

Detours will be in place via the Swanport Bridge on the South Eastern Freeway, with signage in place to advise motorists. 🚶‍♀️🚴‍♂️ There will also be temporary footpath closures on either side of the bridge, however pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained at all times. ➡️ More info: http://bit.ly/2HwYLFs ...
