5 Driving Tips To Stay Safe At The Roundabout

Some non-Corona Virus advice to get you through the day

The news is full of Covid-19 right now, but there are other dangers in the world that YOU need to look out for.

Approximately 40% of all car accidents happen at intersections, with most of these resulting in serious injuries.  

Roundabouts, however, make intersections much safer.

Here's how to stay safe driving around the roundabout.

Environment Minister floats 'lending' Murray Darling environmental water to farmers

Environment Minister floats 'lending' Murray Darling environmental water to farmers

Australia's key piece of environment legislation, the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act, is due to be reviewed this year.

Ms Ley said it provided "real opportunity to remove some of the green tape around environmental approvals" while maintaining the integrity of the laws.

"If you're an investor and you've got a proposal … it's reasonable that we accept your investment isn't just going to be parked for years, sometimes, until the issues have been worked through," she said.

"I think we just need to give proponents more assurances along the way."

Ms Ley said she did not intend to shut down court challenges to development decisions, however, "it's not being done in a timely enough manner".

Australian Conservation Foundation nature campaign manager Basha Stasak said talk about cutting green tape was "code for making it easier for the loggers to cut down our forests, the diggers to rip up endangered animal habitat and corporate irrigators to suck more water out of our rivers".

NSW Farmers welcome state government drought funding boost

NSW Farmers welcome state government drought funding boost

NSW Farmers has welcomed the state government's commitment to boost its drought assistance, as farmers and communities continue to battle this intense, long-running drought.

On Tuesday, Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced that the upcoming state budget would include an extra $355 million to help farmers and rural communities struggling with the drought

The money is in addition to the almost $400 million announced during the March election campaign, bringing the government's total support bill to $1.8 billion.

The new package would include $170 million in funding to fast track investment in regional infrastructure. 

NSW Farmers president James Jackson said while farmers are bearing the brunt of ongoing dry conditions, the severity and long-term nature of this drought is a having a significant impact on rural towns and communities.

Better water on the Way

Better water on the Way

A better water supply for Narrabri is in the pipeline as council staff and contractors move towards completion of the major $10.4 million Narrabri water supply augmentation project.

The tender, one of the biggest let by the council in recent years, was announced in September 2018 and the project has proceeded smoothly.

The water ugrade, the product of four years’ investigation and planning, will underwrite a quality water supply at one of the lowest costs in the state, the council general manager Stewart Todd said when the contract was let.

What You Need to Know if you Plan to Buy a Car Before The End of Financial Year

What You Need to Know if you Plan to Buy a Car Before The End of Financial Year

Julian Parsons - Sydney

Did you know that now is the perfect time to buy a car?

The end of the financial year is right around the corner and it couldn’t be a better time to buy a new car. If you’re after a good bargain, there’s quite a bit to consider when purchasing a car.

With different financing methods and competing sales rates, there are a lot of possibilities to ensure that you get the best deal. And the good news is that both small-time car dealers and big brands are keen to sell cars at hefty discounts before the end of the financial year.

Drought assistance package announced

Drought assistance package announced

The state’s record-breaking drought continues to bite with farmers and rural communities bearing the brunt of the crisis.
 
While some regions have experienced rain during the past few months, 97 per cent of the state remains in drought, and the seasonal outlook remains bleak with the Bureau of Meteorology forecasting drier than average conditions.
 
That is why the NSW Nationals in Government have today announced an Emergency Drought Relief package, bringing the total funding to more than $1.8 billion across the state, to further support farmers and regional communities.
 
I understand the effect this drought is having on our regional economy, communities and families.
