A note from the CE
It has been an extremely busy month since I commenced my role as Chief Executive for the Department and I am so proud to be part of an organisation that is dedicated to delivering important infrastructure and services for South Australians.
We’ve worked hard to establish the Office of the Chief Executive, our three new Ministers’ offices and briefing their teams on our significant portfolio with key staff and processes now starting to settle in.
I am thrilled that we are swiftly moving forward with delivering on the Government’s ambitious agenda and some of their key election commitments, including:
- Aquatic Centre – early planning and stakeholder engagement
- Implementation of free public transport for seniors by 1 July 2022
- Broader community engagement for Mike Turtur Bikeway Overpass underway
- Planning underway for the extension of Main South Road Duplication to Sellicks Beach and grade separation at Aldinga Beach Road
- Progressing the next steps for the Port Dock Rail Spur Extension.
We have more than fifty election commitments to deliver for the Government, in addition to our day-to-day services, and it’s been great to see how quickly our organisation has mobilised to meet our targets.
I would like to thank all our hard working staff who continue to deliver high quality results despite recent challenges of COVID-19 impacting resources and transitioning to a new government.
Have a great weekend and stay safe.
Jon Whelan, Chief Executive

Vale Bill Gonis OAM
We are deeply saddened by the recent passing of one of our Department’s long serving staff members, Bill Gonis OAM.
Bill had a long and extensive history in the delivery of taxi services. As an executive manager in the taxi industry, Bill was responsible for the provision of the Access Taxi service and a major metropolitan taxi fleet, before joining the State Government in 2004.
During Bill’s time with the Department he had responsibility for the accreditation and licensing centre, industry liaison and passenger transport policy, standards and compliance. His most recent role was Manager, Industry Liaison with the South Australian Public Transport Authority from 2019.
Outside of work, Bill was the longest serving President of the Greek Orthodox Community of SA and was described as a “humble man and an exemplary leader”.
Bill’s knowledge, dedication and sense of humour will be missed by his colleagues, past and present. We extend our condolences to his family and friends during this difficult time.

Staff spotlight is on…
Connie Pezos started with the Department in 2014 in the Office Accommodation Client Services team as a Leasing Consultant. The team is now known as the Government Accommodation Services team and sits within the Property Directorate.
Working in that role for eight years, Connie assisted with the management of the accommodation portfolio for various Agencies.
For the last four and a half years, Connie has been working as a Government Accommodation Manager, responsible for managing our Department’s and the Department for Child Protection’s commercial leased accommodation across the state.
On the weekend, you can find Connie cooking up a storm in the kitchen or out on a bike ride.

Today’s Friday Flashback shows a view of Murray Bridge. This is the original bridge, completed in 1879. In 1886, rail was added to link Adelaide with the eastern states. Later, in 1924, a new rail bridge was constructed and the rails removed from the old bridge.
Visit the Old Murray Bridge Refurbishment Project page for information on what the Department in doing now in order to maintain the long term structural integrity of the bridge.
