When we think of “infrastructure projects” we generally like to think of big stuff. Continent spanning fibre-optic lines, double track electrified railway, huge water pipelines, dual carriageways with flyovers, canals, harbours, and dams.
But Mr Stanhope has announced that the first benefits of all this infrastructure splurging are going to be more prosaic.
- The funding, from the Rudd Labor Government’s $800 million Community Infrastructure Program, will deliver a $1.4 million youth facility for Woden’s Eddison Park and $600,000 in upgrades to Glebe Park in Civic.
Apparently Woden’s Eddison park is “Canberra’s most central district park” and there’s a blogspot on which to get involved in the consultation on exactly what amenity it should have.
