Garema Place screen busted and aint getting fixed

By johnboy - 16 April 2009 6

CityNews have an interesting piece on the general decrepitude of Canberra, particularly Garema Place.

    DESPITE researching clear community benefits, the ACT Government is in no hurry to replace the screen and broken canopy in Garema Place with a digital one.

    The original screen was intended also to be used as a canopy, tilting to cover performers using the stage below to allow shade, but the mechanism broke not long after its opening nearly 10 years ago, with repairs resulting in the screen being locked permanently in the upright position.

Apparently it’s all too hard.

What’s Your opinion?

Gobbo said :

Except that the planter pots were a CBD Ltd installation.

CBD Ltd advised in the Canberra Times when the pots went in that they would be removed at the end of March 09.

And they will come back next spring.

We are talking about a Government that can’t keep their Planters Pots operational.

The lack of shade makes that stage one of the most crap performance spaces around. The chess pit is a stark shadeless chasm over which no performer can reach an audience. The government’s own “Groovin’ in the City” gigs don’t even use it.

That’s not really broken is it. Or it has been for ten years, either way it’s not a story.
