SA Police are hosting two community forums next week, in Port Lincoln and Cummins on the Eyre Peninsula, to discuss road safety and heavy vehicles in the region.
“These forums will be about ensuring all road users understand their responsibilities and the need to drive with care in the region,” Superintendent Paul Bahr, the officer in charge of the Eyre and Western Local Service Area.
The community meeting comes as Genesse and Wyoming Australia’s train ceases service transporting grain from the Lower Eyre Peninsula to the port at Port Lincoln at the end of the month.
There is expected to be an increase in heavy vehicle movements in the region as a result.
In addition to the physical meetings, SA Police will also provide an online forum at the same time as the Port Lincoln meeting.
This engagement in the digital space will be facilitated via Facebook in the same way as other regular online PACE Forums hosted by SA Police.
To participate in the online forum, interested parties will simply need to have an active Facebook account and go to the Police Facebook site ‘South Australia Police’ at 7pm on Monday 27 May.
Interested Facebook users will then be able to ask questions via the comments section on a livestream video posted on the night.
