A woman has been granted conditional bail after she allegedly crashed into parked cars while driving at more than six times the legal alcohol limit on Wednesday, leaving a six-year-old girl with serious injuries.

Emergency services were called to Eastwood in Sydney’s north at 12.40pm after the 50-year-old woman allegedly reversed into two cars.

A six-year-old girl who was walking between the cars was trapped between them by the impact, police said.

She sustained serious injuries to her pelvis and was taken to Westmead Children’s Hospital, where she remained in a serious condition on Wednesday night.

Police arrested the 50-year-old woman near to the accident scene and took her to Ryde Police Station.

A breath analysis allegedly found a blood alcohol reading of .303, more than six times the legal limit of 0.05.

She was charged on Wednesday night with high-range drink driving, using her mobile phone while driving and causing bodily harm by misconduct.

The woman was granted conditional bail and will face Burwood Local Court on October 24.

Progress Avenue, where the crash took place, was cordoned off as police examined the scene.

Officers from the Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit are investigating the events leading up to the crash, police said.

Architects in beauty parade for $1b Lendlease Circular Quay revamp

Architects are now making submissions for a Lendlease proposal for Circular Quay.The proposed $1.5 billion redevelopment of Lendlease’s​ Circular Quay office project has moved to the beauty parade stage with a range of Australian and international architects now putting in submissions.
Nanjing Night Net

The design jury comprises three nominees each from Lendlease and the City of Sydney.

It comes as the whole of the area enters the next stage of the City of Sydney’s revamp of the city’s major water front which will include the ferry terminals.

The more than $2 billion redevelopment of the area is seen as one of the last pieces of the puzzle in the upgrade of Sydney, which extends from Haymarket at the southern end of the city, through Darling Harbour with the new International Convention Centre and Barangaroo. There is also the new light rail along George Street and the Sydney Metro.

The last area will be the Bays precinct at White Bay, Balmain, which internet giant, Google, is looking to call home once the area is repatriated, and also the proposed new Sydney fish markets.

AMP is undertaking a $1 billion redevelopment of 50 Bridge Street at the eastern end of Circular Quay, while the Chinese giant Wanda is looking to build a hotel and residential tower on the site of the Gold Fields House.

Lendlease’s site is near the planned Wanda project.

Lendlease revised its first $1 billion proposal in July to contend with the $1 billion Wanda One development next door by gaining approval for a 248 metre tower, almost 30 metres higher than the old plan.

It was suggested earlier this year that China’s Ping An Insurance and Japan’s property house Mitsubishi will help finance the Lendlease project.

Mark Menhinnitt, Lendlease’s managing director for urban regeneration, said on Wednesday that Lendlease has initiated a competitive design process for the site at Circular Quay.

“The competition is being run according to the City of Sydney’s Competitive Design Policy, and seven international and local architect teams have been invited to participate,” he said in a statement.

” A decision is expected around mid- to late-December.”

Lendlease said the competitive design process for the site comprises two competitions: one competition for the entire precinct excluding the Jacksons on George site and one competition for Jacksons on George only.

The architects vying for the Lendlease project include BVN, Hassell, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Foster and Partners, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, HOK, and David Chipperfield Architects.

Western Bulldogs best and fairest award won by Marcus Bontempelli

Nanjing Night Net

The Western Bulldogs youngster concluded a dream season by claiming the Charles Sutton Medal, easily winning Wednesday night’s count at Crown Casino. He is the youngest winner of the award since David Thorpe in 1968.

The honour is yet another feather in Bontempelli’s increasingly impressive cap.

It came after the former No.4 draft pick was last month named All-Australian for the first time.

He was also named in the AFL Players’ Association’s “22 under 22” team for the third straight year, and even briefly stepped in as the club’s captain mid-season after injuries to Bob Murphy and Easton Wood. In just his third season at the elite level, Bontempelli played all 26 games, averaging more than 24 disposals and exactly one goal.

He led the club in tackles, contested possessions, inside 50s and clearances, and was the Dogs’ equal leader in goal assists. The midfielder was a solid performer in his side’s unlikely finals run, most notably in the upset semi-final win over Hawthorn, in which he was arguably best afield.

Bontempelli finished with 319 votes,  clear of veteran backman Dale Morris (248) and emerging midfielder Lachie Hunter (246).

Morris, 33, was rewarded for a fine season in defence. He is one of several veterans at the club to have thrived since the arrival of coach Luke Beveridge two years ago.

Hunter, 21, had been a fringe player during his first three seasons at the Whitten Oval, but enjoyed a breakout year in 2016, averaging nearly 28 disposals as he built a reputation as one of the competition’s most consistent midfielders.

Having missed all of last season due to a serious knee injury, 2014 best and fairest Tom Liberatore bounced back to finish fourth in this year’s count with 218 votes.

Former captain Matthew Boyd came ninth after his All-Australian effort, while rebounding defender Jason Johannisen – who won the Norm Smith Medal in last Saturday’s grand final win over Sydney – finished 10th on Wednesday night, despite missing nine games during the year with a hamstring injury.

Liam Picken was rewarded for an outstanding finals series in which he averaged more than 23 disposals and kicked eight goals – named the club’s best finals player in addition to finishing fifth overall.

Josh Dunkley – overlooked by the Swans as a father-son selection in last year’s draft – won the Chris Grant best first-year player award after playing 17 games this season, including the grand final victory over the club of his father Andrew.

$25 million boost for MIA

THEfederal governmentisprioritising investment in infrastructure over water buybacks with aboost of $25 million in funding on Wednesday.
Nanjing Night Net

The funding,for on-farm water infrastructure projects in the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area,will provideabout 806 kilometres of new or refurbished water delivery channels, 1044 kilometres of stock and domestic pipeline for water supply to 227 farmers, 8694 new meters, control points and channel infrastructure and improved water delivery infrastructure.

The cash boost was announced byDeputy Prime Minister and Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, Barnaby Joyce and Member for Farrer Sussan Ley.

Speaking on a property nearWhitton, the ministers said thefunding wouldmeet the strong demand fromirrigators to take part in a ‘Private Irrigation Infrastructure Operators Program’ (PIIOP) that wouldhelpthem to modernise their farms.

Mr Joyce said modern and efficient water infrastructure was the key to securing a healthy and productive future for the basin and the communities, ecosystems andindustriesthat depended on it.

“More modern, efficient and controllable infrastructure delivers tangible benefits to the farmer –like greater flexibility in crop choice, increased yields and the ability to produce a larger crop from lower water allocations,” he said.

Mr Joyce said the funding would do further work in getting efficiency out of irrigation,that would in-turn get better returns back to towns like Griffith.

The upgradestoirrigation schemes to be funded by the PIIOP would result in a net increase in water available for productive use by reducing losses through seepage and evaporation,according to Ms Ley who also emphasised the benefits this would have for local communities.

“Projects like this not only strengthen water security but also benefit the community and help boost the local economy through the use of local resources and suppliers,” she said.

“This additional funding will enable more efficient, controlled water delivery –supporting increased crop production for farmers across the network.”

Mr Joyce said it was great to be in the irrigation area saying ithad done so much for the nation for such a long period of time.

“These are the people who went out west and carved out the blocks and managed to get crops in the ground that actually delivered returns, not only for our nation but also to feed the world,” he said emphasising that it was important to continue to invest in these people.

Hagons pay tribute to Holden: Our Car

SINCE the first Great Race was held at Mount Panorama in 1963, no manufacturer has enjoyed more success at Mount Panorama than Holden.
Nanjing Night Net

Each year a wave of supporters decked out in red and black make their annual trek to the Mount in a Holden and proudly wave their red lion flags.

Thousands of Australians have a deep passion for Holdens – something which father and son Will and Toby Hagon recognise.

Between them the Hagons have 70 years of experience in the automotive industry and now they have decided to tell the story of Holden in Australia.

Their co-authored book Holden: Our Car 1856-2017 explores and explains the dramatic rise and fall of Holden’s empire. It is full of never before seen photos, art work, advertising and futuristic designs from the manufacturer’s archive.

“Australia’s revered ‘own’ car brand – Holden – will not quite make 70 when it stops being Australian and production ceases in Adelaide[vehicle assembly]and Melbourne [engine production]in later 2017,” the Hagons write.

“That will be the end of the Australian motor industry as we’ve known it for nearly 120 years, of dreamers, designers, engineers and passionate car people making vehicles for track as well as road, that suited this big, tough land.”

Holden: Our Car naturally touches on the Great Race – both in the 500 and 1000 format – as well as the Bathurst 6 Hour, 12 Hour and 24 races.

Not surprisingly, the Hagons have also devoted a chapter to Peter Brock, the nine-times Great Race winner who was dubbed ‘The King of the Mountain.’

This year’s Bathurst 1000 will see competitors take time to mark the 10thanniversary of Brock’s death. The winners of Sunday’s 161-lap epic will also be awarded the Peter Brock Trophy.

Whether or not a Holden wins – taking the tally to 31 successes in the endurance epic – remains to be seen.

But Holdens will still hold a special place in the heart of many Australians, as the Hagons put it: “Holden is our car – a symbol of our pioneering spirit and a vehicle for our dreams.”
