Today I visited Oatley West Public School-Official School where work has recently been completed on new gardens. The gardens are a great credit to the school, and include native and endangered plant species. $16,000 of Federal Government funding was put towards this important project. ... See MoreSee Less

For decades, Yeramba Lagoon at Picnic Point was overgrown with weeds. In recent years we've removed a large amount of weeds, and construction will begin shortly on a weir that will connect the Lagoon to the Georges River, which will further improve water quality.

Still a lot of weed there went past yesterday unfortunately it comes back too fast. So much has been removed be good when opened up to the Georges River again.

Yeah I've seen the weeds at that particular area are pretty aggressive...could be a lot of work there...good idea though Mr MP.

What’s cleared looks good but do wish to see it all cleared as comes back very quickly. What are the plans to clear up the whole lagoon in one go?

What impact will opening it have on freshwater species in the lagoon??

Looking forward to our local bush-walks even more..great work. Thanks.

How about council clearing the reserve behind Bill Delaunay, along The River Road, and near Prince St?

About time the Lagoon was a disgrace.

Great progress David; thanks. 👍🌟

How about cleaning the street and vegetation etc

Great job. Now when will we ban jet skis from the Georges River?

Good man. One of the really sincere pollies.

God willing you great you my sir

You are doing a great job David

Who is "we"? Is that Council , State or Federal? I assume Federal as you are a Federal politician.

Lovely to see the Lagoon cleared and the restoration of the weir will make the lagoon tidal once more. Now all that has to be done is convince TfNSW that trucks and trailers should not park there. Trailers can be parked there for days on end. If the wetlands are to be restored and used the parking will have to be clear.

Good luck

Good job

Fantastic!!!

Thanks, the lagoon was a hidden gem back in the 80s and it would be wonderful to see it restored.

You great you very beautiful

God bless you

You great sir

God bless you

Great you sir God keeping you my brother sir excus me im ezide in Sinjar in Iraq

Stop terrorising the family that your government have isolated on Christmas Island and at great expense to us the tax payer. Stop the continuing legal bills for the Australian tax payer and send this family back to their HOME in Biloela

When turning onto Uranus Road from Lang Street at Padstow, it can be difficult to clearly see oncoming traffic.

The Federal Government is providing $230,000 to install a roundabout at this intersection to help improve safety for local residents. Construction is now underway.

What are the plans for pedestrians here, currently they have priority at this intersection and a refuge island. With a round about they will lose priority (as per the road rules) and possibly the island.

Wonderful David. thanks for the lobby of this project. Hopefully, there are the refuse islands with this roundabout as well because there are a lot of pedestrians who cross Uranus Road to walk to Padstow station.

Yes, it would be different to see traffic around Uranus, David.

What sbout finance for a turnba v job at East Hills station. This would prevent overcrowding especially in these times.

Good work Dave

Yess. Sounds good. But can we please have a round about at the corner of Chamberlain rd and alma rd. Just two days ago I was 1 cm of having a car accident. It's just ridiculous. I always see car accidents happen and near misses especially in peak hour. Please do something there to make it safer for civilians and school students Please put a round about there

So wonderful to have you back in charge David.

This continues the riveting series “A Cardboard Cut Out Of David Coleman Placed In Front of Random Objects In The Banks Electorate” That cardboard cutout of David Coleman sure cuts a dashing figure! And is also about as effective as the real David Coleman. You keep standing in front of stuff, oh fearless leader!

Waste of money try opening your eyes when turning

How about you David take a wage freeze for a couple of years with all Politicians and show that you really care about Straya.

Great, but how about re-opening the electoral offices?

Pablo Sanz

Why is the federal government funding this?

Badly designed roudabout. Never seen one so tight. Why put that there? Does a politician live in Lang St?

$230k to improve uranus 😂

$230,000 to draw a circle wut

230k? Ill do it for 150k

Thanks to Mark Coure MP and Georges River Council for also supporting this project.

Nice to see you back David .

Great to see you back David. Look after yourself in these troubled times and stay safe.

Great to hear that. Why no ones is wearing Mask 😷?

Hi can you do the same for Bankstown around the bus terminals ? The place is turning into a ghetto day by day

is it true you really pissed off Dutton>? Why not play the game and give this petition - hidden from parliament to Mr Smith and ask him to put Dutton into the High Court? www.aph.gov.au/petition_list?id=EN1199

so tell me why you can be out and about with mates but cant be bothered with parliament or doing your ministerial job? Why should you continue to get $300,000 a year for doing photo ops?
