I wonder if they’re putting that contaminated dirt in the giant hole at the old Tarago mine? There’s quite a lot of sand trucks mooching around there.

From the Canberra times today:

The north part of Lawson is going to be used for housing as well.

Isn’t there toxic waste on this land?

There has been a process taking place early this year of removing contaminated earth (dioxins I believe?) and covering it up with new material brought from Windellama.

As I recall a lot of lead based paint that all shook off the radio masts when they were dropped (rather than disassembled) as someone thought that would be a good quick way to get them down…

You’d be paying a premium for the land because of the cleaning costs for living in what is really a pretty shitty area.

Shitty?…If it weren’t for the worry about contamination I’d be interested in a bit of land there.

Agreed Aidan. That southern part of Lawson in particular is in a very convenient spot – UC and Canberra Stadium just across the road, easy access to Civic via Heydon Drive, easy access to GDE (= Woden and Tuggers), Belco close by, and Lake Ginninderra as well.

Like you say, if not for the contamination…

I’ve heard they’ve run out of space for hazardous materials at the part of Mugga Lane that’s meant to cater for it. Anyone able to verify?
