Mrs DRAPER (1:58 PM) —On Saturday just past, I had the pleasure of representing the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Transport and Regional Services, Mark Vaile, to assist in opening the Unity Park BMX track and clubrooms for our young people in my electorate of Makin. The new BMX track and clubrooms supported by the Australian government under the Sustainable Regions Program put over $300,000 towards the project together with Salisbury council and Recreation and Sport SA. We relocated the BMX facility to Unity Park from Gepps Cross in order to have an international standard venue for our championship finals, which were held on that Saturday.

The Australian government is proud to be associated with the project, and it is a great example of some of our achievements under the Sustainable Regions Program. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Playford-Salisbury sustainable regions advisory committee chaired by Peter Smith for their excellent work in the region. In closing, I would like to recognise the efforts of the City of Salisbury, Cross Keys BMX bike club and the local sustainable regions advisory committee for their roles in bringing this wonderful project to fruition. They were all very proud of their efforts on the day, I can assure you.
