The No-Nonsense Minister Hargreaves has put out a media release bringing the Happy News that City Walk West has been completed (not to be confused with Civic West.
Apparently we should all notice a much more pedestrian friendly environment. Not that I ever felt particularly threatened through there as a pedestrian, unless you count menacing drunks late of a Friday night, which I don’t think will be addressed by a simple road narrowing.
So what did all the money go on? One wonders…
“A new logo – featuring a hexagon shape of the road patterns of Civic with three surrounding crescents representing community, culture and the surrounding landscape – has also been erected on the bins and seats as part of the project. This logo will be used throughout the City to reinforce its distinctive identity.”
I feel more vibrant already!
