GAWLER motorists were left feeling the financial pinch at the bowser this past week, after petrol prices soared beyond 150 cents per litre (c/L).
THE RAA has called for an urgent fix to Horrocks Highway – especially the 90 kilometre stretch between Gawler and Clare – as an immediate means of helping to reduce the state’s road toll.
HOLIDAY periods may no longer be used as a quick cash grab for petrol retailers, with prices only expected to rise slightly at Christmas, according to an industry body.
THE sudden, impending closure of Gawler’s RAA outlet has locals disappointed.
THE RAA is asking members of the Barossa and Light Regional communities, and people who regularly travel through the region, to provide feedback on their road safety concerns for the region.
LOCAL parents are being warned about the dangers of leaving children trapped in hot cars this summer, after two kids were rescued from a locked vehicle in Gawler recently.
LOCAL motorists are experiencing further relief at the bowser, with oil prices continuing their slide this month, according to fuel experts.
THE RAA is the latest to join a growing chorus calling on the Federal Government to electrify Gawler’s train line in the wake of next month’s election.
