Tuesday, 17 May 2022 is the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexphobia, and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT Day). Our department supports an inclusive and welcoming workplace for all staff and recognises the important role that IDAHOBIT Day plays, both as a celebration of diversity and as a reminder of the work still necessary to combat discrimination.
The Rainbow Allies Community of Practice has created a paper chain link display on Level 18, 77 Grenfell Street and all staff are welcome to add their own link to the chain to show their support for their LGBTIQA+ colleagues.
Our Chief Executive, Jon Whelan, will also be hosting a SA public sector panel discussion featuring LGBTIQA+ public sector employees sharing why IDAHOBIT and LGBTIQA+ inclusion is important to them, as well as tips about how public sector employees can help to make our services and workplaces more inclusive.
Find out more on how to get involved with IDAHOBIT or how to stream the panel discussion by visiting the Intranet.
PPMF Newsletter launched
The Transport Network & Investment Strategy team has been working hard over the last year implementing and systemising the Program and Project Management Framework (PPMF) and upgrading CAMMS. Both projects aim to simplify project management processes across the department and improve consistency in project reporting.
The team recently launched a newsletter to help keep interested staff up to date with the progress.
Staff spotlight is on…
Michael Cushway joined the department 22 years ago in the Service Standards area developing journey planning, rostering and service standards job scheduling systems.

This role took him into a specialist technical role in 2011 with the team that planned and implemented the existing Metrocard contactless smartcard ticketing and real-time passenger information systems.
Today, Michael is the Project Systems Specialist in the SAPTA Ticketing Unit project team delivering multiple ticketing upgrade projects, including contactless validation and passenger counting, that will have a positive impact on the people of South Australia.

Today’s Friday Flashback shows the original Railway station at Port Adelaide which opened in April 1856. It is a large stone building with a tower and a curved roof over the platforms.
A locomotive can be seen leaving the platform on the right. Sixty years later, in 1916, a new station was built on Commercial Road and became the main Port Adelaide Railway Station, this original one being known as 'Port Dock'.
