Huge signs were erected about 5 years ago at the entrances to Bruce delineating the Bruce Precinct – listing the ACT Innovation Centre, UC, CIT, Radford College etc.
For the past 2 years one of those signs, on College Street near CISAC, has stood there with the right-hand one-third of its sign missing (torn off), bits of steel sticking out, and the rest a little peeled and faded as the result of a nearby grass fire. The overall look then is one of a dump, or a war zone, or a ghetto (albeit with grass and trees!), not an innovation precinct.
The thing I can’t understand is that a hundred territory public servants must go past this sign on a daily basis – in their buses, cars, bikes etc. People from TAMS – the part of Government which has responsibility for signs – must go past in their droves on a daily basis. The Chief Minister’s house is only 500 metres from this sign – even he must go past sometimes!
So how then, can a huge sign like this sit there day after day without anyone bothering to fix it, or report it?
My theory is that if every territory public servant was charged with the responsibility of reporting damage to property, graffiti, missing signs etc, then these problems would be fixed overnight.
I will report it now myself via the Government’s feedback page – but after two years, why do I, a mere citizen (not a public servant), have to do so?
