Defence to pay for road upgrades to new DefHQ

By Thumper 10 October 2007 23

The SMH is reporting that, unusually, the Dept of defence will contribute $8.2M towards a road upgrade between Canberra and the new defence HQ.

Defence Minister Brendan Nelson has called on the NSW and ACT governments to contribute another $6.5 million between them for other works on the road.

Somehow i can’t see the ACT and NSW State governments chipping on this one.

What’s Your opinion?

You will get speed cameras before better roads in that case V twin. Apparently they save lives.

As someone who commutes in the opposite direction to the bulk of traffic on the KIngs Highway, I welcome the upgrade. Lets hope that the bickering between the RTA and Roads ACT does’nt waste too much time and money. The condition of the ACT section is a best appalling. The benifits to the community won’t be in saving time travelling to the coast, it will save lives.

Thanks Troy, we here on this site of the interweb struggle at times with the concept that if we were actually interested in the media release we might find it on the minister’s web site.

Can you also tell me how to get to the hotmail?
