This is a whinge really and yes I know you ‘perfect’ people will shoot me down in flames but I don’t care.
How is it that developers are able to obtain permission to supposedly close off only half a road, when in fact it is most of the road and then encroach on the rest of it with huge skip bins for lengthy periods, close access to footpaths so that disabled people like me are forced to try and navigate gutters and curbs and obscure pedestrian line of sight to oncoming traffic.
When did this become an acceptable thing in Canberra that we are all just supposed to put up with it? Is anyone monitoring the chaos? Sorry but the closing of the only disabled access on the footpath the other day was the last straw for me.

For those unfamiliar with the current state of the area referred to by Someonesmother, I took these pics at lunchtime today. Pic 2 shows the closed off ramp through to the central walkway which leads up to the post office square.
