I would say they have already secured a site before making this announcement and doubt they would be looking at any still for sale/on the market.
An article below I found talks about the potential airport & transport hub being at Monarto... so maybe this area is likely for Thomas foods?

I'd expect a land purchase contract to be signed, but subject to various conditions such as approval to built an abattoir on the site and access to sufficient electricity, water, finance etc before settlement. The announcement today presumably means that all of these conditions are satisfied.
Real estate agents don't take down their ads while there is any possibility of the sale falling through for two related reasons - 1) to ensure they have a fallback buyer interested and 2) to maximise their exposure so that any newly-interested parties can be switched to another property through the same agent.

I guess we will find out in time where it will be. I'm not sure if the railway and freeway junctions or route have been finalised yet, so the airport may have a few possibilities depending on who is ready to sell land cheapest when/if the time comes.

They wouldn’t take down the ad but they would at least put under contract on it and I think they would be obliged to disclose this very material fact. I also doubt Thomas Foods would wait this long to secure a new site.. I would expect it was done many, many months ago.
I also wouldn’t be surprised if the land isn’t already secured for any potential airport/transport hub but not that it was bought land but existing Crown/Govt land that has been reserved.

The development of the new Bridgeport Hotel started a few months ago and is due to be completed in 12 months or so.

Here's a photo from the hotel's Facebook page

I haven't seen anyone else mention that state and federal governments are spending a total of $14 million on a road upgrade to service the planned new factory for Thomas Foods international a few kilometres out of Murray Bridge. The plan says it will upgrade a stretch of Mannum Road to provide safe deceleration and acceleration of road trains, and provide a 2.2km access road to the site of the factory. Tender to be awarded soon, for the road work to be completed around the end of the year.

The DPTI page also answers the earlier question about where the factory will be, northeast of Murray Bridge Airport, accessed from a new junction on Mannum Road.

A $50-million residential development with up to 350 allotments has been announced on the former home of the Murray Bridge Racing Club.

Located on a 45-hectare land parcel near the centre of Murray Bridge, the Newbridge project is adjacent to the Murray Bridge Golf Club and is being developed by South Australian real estate business Burke Urban.

Burke Urban said the first stage, which had been granted development approval from the Rural City of Murray Bridge, included 23 hectares with 129 Torrens Title allotments ranging from 412 sqm to 1061 sqm.
