DECEMBER 2004 New Experience for Saiki R esidents in Saiki, Glad- stone’s sister city in Japan, were treated to a cultural delight recently when two of Gladstone’s Aboriginal artists, Coral Southee and Allen Craigie paid a visit to share their talents. During their brief visit in Saiki, Coral and Allen painted a friendship pole with the help of local school children, intro- ducing them to traditional Aboriginal culture through their art. The friendship pole, along with another two that were painted by the pair in Australia were given to the people of Saiki and will be installed as part of their ‘Kangaroo Garden’. Callemondah Overpass Becoming a Reality T he starting line is now in sight for the Callemondah Overpass with another two steps taken towards making the project a reality. The ﬁrst step came with the Federal Government’s announcement to pro- vide the remaining $3 million needed, the second step with the ﬁnalisation of consultants for the project. Kellogg, Brown and Root (KBR) have been successful in securing the design component with local consult- ant, Qantec McWilliams overseeing the construction management component. Tenders for the construction of the Overpass are expected to be called in early 2005.
