Hibberson St Mall?

By gomer - 21 May 2009 30

I just heard on channel 7 this morning that the govt may turn Hibberson street, Gungahlin into a mall.

Do any RA readers know anything about this?

What’s Your opinion?

Oh, c’mon! We’ve had no facilities forever.

Whoopty doo. If it is true, then its just another example of Gungahlin getting all the infrastructure, while the rest of developing areas around Canberra miss out, contrary to budget and election promises.Now where do I start. Roads,education, public transport, a new semi emergency medical centre, shopping complexes, the list goes on when you have the largest growing population, other regions simply miss out, or in the case of Lanyon and the Tharwa Bridge, shut down because money is channelled where the votes are. Tharwa Drive duplication is a fine example. Its well known that funds promissed for this road were re-directed to GDE, year after year. Getting pretty sick of hearing about the Gungahlin (AKA ACT) Budget, year after year!

Now have a copy of the Chronicle article posted on our website:
Seems it was a bit more than just the headline that misread the meaning of a ‘shared zone’.

Close, but all the politicians have a drawing session after each sitting. These pictures are given to Mr Developer, who makes them into a suburb. Katy Gallagher usually gets the star sticker on her picture, while Brendan Symth’s pictures are just squiggles. So Brendan usually calls Katy names like poo poo head, political spin doctors turn it into something else.

By turning it into a major thoroughfare our planners really stuffed up big time and must now wear the consequences.

Planners? Really? There are actually people responsible for planning the way the Territory is being developed?

So it’s a load of shit then.

Well, I wouldn’t have put it quite that way, but basically … yes!

So it’s a load of shit then. OK….

Still I wouldn’t have minded a mall except for the expensive security issues, cameras everywhere and 24hr police presence.
On the other hand if I were to organize a car cruise (not that I ever have or plan to) the current road would work pretty well. No point cruising unless there’s someone to watch/listen. hmmmm

I think you were very restrained not to inform him of his little problem ….

That driver wouldn’t be a good networker…

Mimiboo, I feel your pain!!

: P

I can never figure out why people even bother driving down Hibberson St. It takes forever to get through. You’d just about have to hold a gun to my head to get me to go that way.

I think you were very restrained not to inform him of his little problem ….
