We’re working hard to maintain our high safety standards, particularly when it comes to road safety and the impact we are having on local roads in the areas in which we work. Across the Project from Roma, along our pipeline route, to Gladstone, there are a number of large vehicles transporting equipment for our Project. Some of you may have also noticed the roadwork activity we are undertaking to improve the width, water drainage and surface quality on roads across the Maranoa Region.
To help locals in these areas manage their travel plans, and to ensure that we are keeping you up-to-date about our activities, we are now providing weekly traffic reports to residents in the Maranoa Region. Since our last update we have published advertisements in The Western Star each week, providing information about our road works, traffic movements and ’hot spot’ activities for the Region. This newspaper advertising has also been complemented with a series of live radio interviews on Friday mornings on 4ZR. Our resident Maranoa traffic expert, Mat Gane, provides listeners with information about our traffic-related activity for the following week.
We’ve also been busy with our workforce training and we’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate one of our trainees, Robbie Geebung, who has won the ‘Bob Marshman Trainee of the Year’ Award for his outstanding achievements and leadership. Mr Geebung was a graduate from our Indigenous Horticulture Program - he has now joined our team full-time, and is a finalist in the Queensland Training Awards in September. We’re also pleased to announce that five local trainees in Gladstone have been given the opportunity to undertake a Santos GLNG sponsored dual apprenticeship in Electro-technology and Instrumentation, which will see them gain hands-on work experience in local Gladstone businesses.
Also in Gladstone, we have commenced the next stage of construction for our employee accommodation with 56 homes being built for GLNG workers moving to Gladstone. These houses are in addition to the 45 homes that were completed in June, and are part of our workforce housing strategy to reduce pressure on the Gladstone housing market.
Finally, in September, Brisbane’s skyline will once again light up with the Santos GLNG City of Lights, as part of the Brisbane Festival. Last year’s laser, light, and special effects show was a huge success and we’re excited to once again support the Festival and see the brand new light show this year.
We hope you enjoy this new look update, as always please feel free to email me with your questions or feedback at Mark.Macfarlane.CEO@glng.com.
