COMMONWEALTH AVENUE BRIDGE CLOSED

By spoonbill - 16 June 2008 12

Trying to get between Civic and Woden this afternoon at about 4.00pm I rounded Vernon circuit heading south only to be directed back north again by the boys in blue. Nothing on the ABC news website to indicate why. Any ideas?

What’s Your opinion?

my boss almost cleaned them up when the stepped out onto the road in front of him. Maybe their protest would have gained more coverage if he had mowed them down…..

would have separated the wheat from the chaff, certainly.

lol – no it doesn’t make it seem more important but shows some characteristics!

In other news, writing the title of your post in ALL CAPS doesn’t make it seem any more important.

It was reported well in advance on ABC news website last night and this morning…

Commonwealth Ave and Kings Ave are real choke points in Canberra traffic – maybe it is time for a new bridge??

There seemed to be nothing in the media about this until after it happened. How did hundreds of angry farmers manage to arrange a protest that seemingly no one else knew about?

They protested on the lawns outside Parliament House, then decided to come inside the Senate Gallery to protest some more. A few were escorted out, anlong with some heckling towards the Liberals, but that was about it.

I heard a Krispy Kreme van crashed…pretty much every cop in town was there.

Remember boys…more than four doughnuts is considered binging!
