VOTE: Australian Democrats senate candidate Tim Burrow campaigned in Port Lincoln last week near the Liverpool Street roundabout to morning commuters.

Australian Democrats senate candidate Tim Burrow promised a long term energy plan and spoke on the benefits of the railway network during his campaigning in Port Lincoln last week.

Mr Burrow advocated for his party at the Liverpool Street roundabout on Friday morning and said the smiles as people drove past had been encouraging.

Mr Burrows said he believed in an Australia that was economically responsible, environmentally sustainable, compassionate and community-focused.

"Our key policy is what we've been doing for 42 years...(it) is accountability and integrity in the parliament," he said.

"We would be calling for an integrity commission as soon as we got the opportunity to do so."

On the topic of drilling in the Great Australian Bight Mr Burrows said his party wanted to work towards a 100 year energy plan that moved away from fossil fuels such as oil.

"We need a long long term plan, that people are working towards and not the waring factions, not the people for three years this way, three years that way."

"Ultimately it's (the plan) sustainable and it's away from fossil fuels, but we can't turn the lights out and just hope we've got to actually have a plan in place to make it happen."

On the closure of the railway on May 31, he said it would have been better for farmers and the community, and provided more opportunities, if the region's railway line had been joined with the national line.

"I've had a long 40 years in agriculture and I think it's really disappointing that our railways have been let go."

"That's an infrastructure that we as a community should encourage."
