Local member Steve Bromhead  indicated to us that he had made representations regarding painting of Martin  bridge. He had negotiated that bridge would be painted light grey (not pink} instead of the usual dark steel grey and that LED lighting would be installed, making Taree's Martin Bridge unique.
He also gave us an update on works being carried out at Manning Base Hospital. These included  MRI unit, Radiotherapy and Oncology unit, and Youth Mental Health  including Head Space.  There is also to be a public hospital at Forster.

Headspace Centres act as a one-stop-shop for young people who need help with mental health issues, physical health (including sexual health), alcohol and other drugs or work and study support

Our 100+ centres are designed not just for young people, but with them, to ensure they are relevant, accessible and highly effective. As a result, no two headspace centres are the same, with each offering unique services that reflect the needs of its local community.
