The Local Government Association of South Australia (LGA SA) held the Roads & Works Conference on 24-25th August in Murray Bridge, SA.
Greencap was a major sponsor, including the Welcome Reception, and was a speaker at the premier ‘all things roads’ event. The Roads & Works Conference aimed to bring together delegates from all over South Australia, and from 68 metro and country councils. This year’s theme was ‘Thriving with challenges and change’.
With talks, technical sessions and infrastructure showcases, this year’s conference was an all-encompassing event taking into account many of the current and future challenges for the roads and motoring industries, including electric cars, renewable energy and effective civil design.
Popular local TV presenter Andrew Costello (“Cosi”) from ‘South Aussie with Cosi’ also appeared at the event, presenting what he sees as the opportunities in this area, and the way forward for South Australia.
This was the first time the event had been held since before the pandemic. Face to face interactions were enthusiastic, and attendees were interested in what participants had to offer, and enjoyed the opportunity to mingle with colleagues, clients and make new connections.
“(It was) a magnificent opportunity for our Greencap SA team, to personally meet the council representatives and suppliers at the LGA Roads & works conference. A stunning venue and a great atmosphere. We were honoured to be able to attend and participate in this milestone SA event,” said Peter Ballinger, Business Development Manager.

“I really enjoyed speaking with members of local councils regarding our services. Also, by visiting the booths available at the event, it helped me gain a better understanding of some of the key players in the infrastructure industry and how Greencap’s services could intertwine and assist,” said Angela Ross, Occupational Hygiene Consultant.
The Greencap SA team had an enjoyable time and commented that it was a well organised event in the picturesque rural setting.
“There were a lot of genuine conversations in the networking sessions. Waste and asbestos management were popular discussion topics,” said Dylan Burford, Practice Manager – Environment.
“It was a brilliant forum that allowed us to connect with the SA LGAs and the broader community, something that we’ve all been wanting to do face-to-face for a long time,” he added.
Greencap are proud to support a conference which is so focused on building communities. The work councils complete is important, and Greencap can assist with the many and varied risks that are encountered during road works, be it contaminated land, dust and silica, noise, or asbestos, furthering the protection of people and the environment.
