Are sharks a danger on our beaches?

Numerous shark attacks in the region have heightened fear around the creatures lurking in the ocean. I spoke to the General Manager of the Bendigo Bank Aerial Patrol Harry Mitchell who monitors Illawarra and South Coast beaches about the increased media attention on sharks and whether there has been an increase in shark sightings this summer.

Picton Rd receives funding one day too late

Picton Road has claimed a fourteenth life just a day before the State Government’s $12 million dollar safety upgrade. The 54 year old man from Raby in south western Sydney was riding a motorcycle when he was struck by a people mover. The notorious stretch of road has caused 152 crashes and killed nine people since 2004. The latest fatality came only six days after the state funding was announced. The projects which will be taken as part of the funding will begin early this year.
