It is with great pleasure that I speak today about how the Marshall Liberal government is delivering a record $12.9 billion investment in roads, hospitals, schools and regional infrastructure and creating thousands of local jobs throughout South Australia and in our local communities.
My community is very aware that for the past 10½ years I have worked assiduously, respectfully and constructively to advocate for the best outcomes for my community at every possible opportunity. I regularly meet with CEs and mayors of local councils, I contact my federal colleagues when necessary and I have meetings with state ministers, as well as the informal opportunity to discuss local issues with my cabinet colleagues twice-weekly. I am also on the Capital City Committee with the Premier and Lord Mayor, where we discuss city-wide projects.
In my local community, the record $12.9 billion in infrastructure projects means that things like the $23 million redevelopment of Adelaide High School will go ahead. This project will create 57 jobs and deliver a new hive building to provide both general and flexible specialist learning areas, teacher preparation areas, storage, amenities, a canteen cafe and outdoor learning areas. The expansion will be within the school's existing footprint and that is that the building upgrade will go up and not out. The infrastructure upgrades will allow the school to grow to 1,800 places and be completed in time for year 7 students to begin high school by 2022.
The Australian Bragg Centre is an exciting project that will create 1,000 jobs. This is a $500 million addition to the largest health and biomedical precinct in the Southern Hemisphere: Adelaide BioMed City. This exciting project is the result of an innovative partnership between the private sector, the federal and state governments and the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute. It will have the potential to change lives for thousands of cancer patients across the country. It will be the home of the first proton therapy centre in Australia and deliver the most technologically advanced precision radiation therapy to people who would normally travel overseas for their treatment. An estimated $1 billion in economic activity will be generated during the construction.
With the combined state and federal capital investment of $466 million, plus additional private and non-government sector investment totalling $1.2 billion, the $1.7 billion investment to Lot Fourteen brings together in one place South Australia's leading capabilities in space, defence, high-tech, creative industries and entrepreneurship and provides a springboard for innovation, ideas and careers. This project is expected to support approximately 815 full-time equivalent jobs per year over the life of the construction.
Lot Fourteen is now the headquarters for the Australian Space Agency, the SmartSat Cooperative Research Centre, Stone and Chalk's startup hub and the Australian Institute for Machine Learning. Work has already commenced on developing an operating model and business case for the Aboriginal Art and Cultures Centre. The site is the future home of the International Centre for Food, Hospitality and Tourism Studies.
Scotty's Corner, which is at the Main North Road and Nottage Terrace intersection, will be finally upgraded. This is something for which I have been advocating on behalf of my local residents for years. This $19 million project will create 15 jobs per year as part of the Urban Congestion Fund and Keeping Metro Traffic Moving. This is a busy intersection, which has on average 66,750 vehicles travel through it each day.
The existing single right-hand turn from Main North Road into Nottage Terrace causes problems due to inadequate capacity, resulting in long delays for peak traffic, difficulty accessing the lane from local streets and rat-running through our local streets to avoid the intersection. The project scope includes the installation of dual right-hand turn lanes onto Nottage Terrace travelling eastbound, the extension of bus priority lanes at the intersection both north and southbound, and upgrades to the pedestrian crossings within the intersection, including new pedestrian crossing lights and ramps.
The Ovingham level crossing removal is a $231 million commitment to remove the level crossing at Torrens Road, Ovingham. This will create 105 jobs per year during the construction. The boom gates at Torrens Road, Ovingham are down for approximately 22 per cent of the time during the combined a.m. and p.m. peak periods, with an average of 21,300 vehicles passing through each day. As the member for Adelaide, I am privileged to serve my community and am proud to be part of the Marshall Liberal government, delivering a record $12.9 billion investment in infrastructure.
