Two days ago you couldn’t walk into the Tuggeranong Hyperdome without being covered in cockroaches according to the Canberra Times.
Today they’d have us believe there’s no problem at all.
An ACT Health inspection of Tuggeranong Hyperdome found no evidence of a major infestation of cockroaches, although some of the pests had been found, according to protection services director John Woollard.
Mr Woollard’s decision to inspect the Hyperdome came after complaints from the public and an article in The Canberra Times on Tuesday.
”Considering the concerns of the public, and the article, I deployed a team of five people on … Tuesday … We did a full regular audit,” he said.
All Hyperdome restaurants and eateries passed inspection, although Mr Woollard said a small number of pests had been found. ”It’s not that there are no cockroaches, they are just not widespread,” he said.
The cynical amongst you might wonder what’s going on with the hyperdome’s advertising negotiations with the CT.
