Great to see the Liberal Member for Brindabella doing what all politicians seem good at and self praising himself in a local flyer for his part in ensuring that the construction of a new swimming pool at Calwell went ahead, despite “numerous hurdles” placed in the way.
One of those hurdles no doubt was the lack of any car park, I assume anyone who wishes to use the facility will enjoy the luxury of trying to find a park at the adjacent Calwell shopping centre. It may come as something of a shock to the member that the car park at the shops is often busy and generally log jammed between 4pm till around 6pm on any weekday. During construction in the range of 30 slots have already been lost and its already chaos before the pool is even opened. To allow the go ahead for such a facility that will “cater for up to 4000 swimmers a week” without ensuring adequate infrastructure such as a car park is just madness.
