Brendan Smyth not thrilled by the Infrastructure Plan

By johnboy 12 July 2011 1

Following on from this morning’s release of the ACT Infrastructure plan to 2021 the Liberals’ Brendan Smyth has had a look and is not impressed:

What is curious is that the largest infrastructure project in the history of the Territory, the $432 million proposed government office block, hardly rates a mention in the governments strategy.

Take the Majura parkway – The Chief Ministers forward talks about the development of the Majura parkway (Pg 4). The report then mentions the split in funding from the Federal and ACT governments (pg 30), only later to say one of the governments key infrastructure priorities was to;

Exploring opportunities to develop a dual carriage parkway between the Monaro and Federal Highways to transform the movement of freight along the north south corridor (Pg 65).

With co-ordination within the plan so poor, one can only wonder what the outcome will be when they get around to building this massive piece of infrastructure.

He does however acknowledge this is an improvement on last year’s plan which misspelled basic place names.

What’s Your opinion?

When will these Liberals understand the reason why the ‘incompetent’ labor party keeps getting re-elected in the ACT is because the only thing you hear from the Liberals is negativity about how bad the government is. Every fartng issue they put their negative spin on things, when maybe some things they would be better to just keep their mouths shut, and not once do you ever hear how they would do things differently so they don’t offer any real alternative. Wake up Zed and co if you want to get in power….
