Westfield Carousel is located on the Albany Highway in Perth’s south-east, just 12 kilometres from the CBD. One of the largest shopping centres in Perth, Carousel caters to nearly one third of the city’s diverse population with the total trade area population exceeding 630,000. The centre also benefits from close proximity to two of Perth’s major university campuses, Curtin University’s Bentley Campus and the South Street Campus of Murdoch University.
In 2017 a $350 million redevelopment started, which will deliver a redefined retail, dining and social destination to Perth’s south east. The completed centre will feature a new David Jones department store, more than 60 additional specialty retail outlets as well as a new fashion precinct, and a landscaped rooftop dining and entertainment quarter. On completion Westfield Carousel is expected to become the largest centre in Western Australia.

Stage one works included the supply and installation of roller shutters for the David jones fitout, as well as roller shutters for the carpark entrances.

As far back as November 2014 and with a state election looming, the then Labour opposition leader Daniel Andrews promised the people of Ballarat that their local Wendouree Ambulance Station would be rebuilt if Labour won the election. The existing facility was not a 21st century station and had a variety of problems.
The Labour party went on to win the election that year, now fast forward to 2018 and the promise of rebuilding the Wendouree Station is complete. The new Wendouree Station was handed over to Victoria Ambulance in May 2018 and is now a state of the art station servicing the greater Ballarat area.

This year’s NTEA Work Truck Show exhibit by Diamond Roll Up Door, Inc. has stirred up massive interest in putting roll up doors on America’s work trucks instead of the traditional swing-out doors currently used in this industry. Diamond has been pushing the idea for several years and may soon see the benefits of its efforts.
The focus this year was getting a complete basic utility body, with roll up doors, in front of the end users and not just the manufacturers. Working with an all aluminum utility body manufacture, Duramag (F3MFG), the two companies have put together an economical, all aluminum, and lite-weight utility body with roll up doors. Working together, the two companies have come up with a utility body that is lite weigh and safer and can be produced at a reasonable price.
The fire and emergency vehicle industry has seen and understands the need for lighter weight and safer vehicles. Nearly 80% of their vehicles produced today have the safer roll up doors. In the process they have determined that the manufacturing process is simpler and actually reduces overall cost. We believe there is going to be a shift to roll up doors in the Work Truck Industry and Diamond is striving to be the catalyst and leader in that endeavor.

The Victorian Government’s Level Crossing Removal Program (the Program) is being delivered by the Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) within the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources. The 2015-2016 State budget allocated $2.4 billion for the removal of at least 20 level crossings by 2018. These sites form the basis of a long term strategic plan developed to remove all 50 level crossings in Metropolitan Melbourne by 2020.
