ABC 666 has just had an Immigration Bridge spokesman on promising that their long march will not be deterred by widespread dislike for their project here in Canberra where they want it built.
Still taking donations for the bridge for the bridge and having spent some coin they’re now exploring alternatives.
One such being alternative to their earlier proposal is a suspension bridge which would at least remove pylons from the lake.
UPDATE: The ABC’s report is now available:
- Immigration Bridge Australia campaign director Andrew Baulch says the group is now working on a new design, with a suspension bridge as one option.
“We’ll be looking at minimising the number of objects that are in the water, ” he said.
“We will have intense consultation and try to carry everybody ahead with us,” he said.
“If at the end of the day that is not possible obviously we’ll have to look at an alternative site but this whatever happens the project will go ahead and it’ll be a great project for Canberra.”
