Alistair Coe is taking a swing at Canberra’s crappy road re-surfacing program which last year was apparently 60% under target (whatever that means).
- ““If the Stanhope-Gallagher Government is unable to deliver on core services such as the Territory’s roads, what hope does the Government have in dealing with the global financial crisis?” Mr Coe asked.
“Failure to keep pace with basic road maintenance schedules means that our roads will deteriorate quicker, become unsafe sooner and are more costly to repair.”
“A simple pot-hole that is not repaired quickly can bring about the need for major road works if it is not attended to quickly.”
The Government has cited world oil prices as one of the factors driving up the price of bitumen. However, world oil prices were at near record highs at the time of the last budget and such expenditure should have been predicted.”
Might want to take a look at the surface they’re laying down as well Alistair.
