Adelaide ties up in port THE Royal Australian Navy’s largest warship HMAS Adelaide arrived in Port Melbourne on Friday after steaming from a temporary berth at HMAS Cerberus in Western Port. The Sydney-based frigate is 230 metres long and can transport 100 vehicles, 18 helicopters and 1000 troops. Captain Jonathan Earley skippered the vessel in her first return to Melbourne since she was assembled at Williamstown in 2012. The visit allowed the navy to resupply the vessel and give its crew some shore leave at a time when the city was hosting the Formula One Grand Prix, AFL round one and International Flower and Garden Show. The 400-strong crew was said to have been working hard in various exercises and in need of a well-deserved break. They waved goodbye on Sunday and headed up the east coast for training exercises.

Bridge build begins over river CONSTRUCTION work has begun on an 80-metre bridge across the Patterson River to connect Bonbeach and Carrum as part of the level crossing removals project. State Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan visited the work site on Monday (26 March) to see construction works begin. An old pedestrian bridge will be demolished. Fishing and walking access will be available along river

paths up to the Launching Way construction site. Detours along the Nepean Highway will mean walkers and cyclists can still visit the area. “The local community advocated for the new road bridge and we’re building it. Construction has started and cars will travel on the new road bridge by the end of the year,” Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny said. “I thank people for their patience

and support while we build the new road bridge. We will continue to work closely with residents, traders and boat users to minimise disruption in the local area as much as possible.” Anti-sky rail protesters are unhappy with the prospect of any form of elevated rail along the Frankston line as part of the Level Crossing Removal Authority project to separate rail from road at level crossings.
