Better signage for building sites

johnboy 2 July 2012 4

The Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate are making sure you all know that builders are going to have to put up big signs to let you know what they’re doing:

From today all ACT building sites that have work carried out or supervised by a licensed builder must display a sign about the work being done.

“The purpose of these new signs is to provide information about the building work including the licensed contractors doing the work,” said Director-General of the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate, David Papps.

“The signs are not a new opportunity for the public to comment on the actual building works and are quite separate to any development application (DA) process that may have happened.

“The signs will allow the community to contact the people responsible for the building work and will allow emergency services personnel to identify the building site quickly and easily.”

“Watch, as the amazing Linguini brothers perform miraculous acts of courage with a nail gun, attempt daredevil balancing acts on the rafters and go into hiding out the back after lunch whilst they down a case of VB”.
Do the signs have to be accurate and detailed??

That’s not a sign. This, is a sign!

Are they trying to make this city more accessible for whiners, busybodies and killjoys?

I’ve got a better signage idea: All Government funded worksites should have an LED sign that shows the initial budget figure with realtime cumulative construction costs underneath.
