Pot-hole in Arts District; theatre-goers appalled!

By poptop - 15 December 2008 65

Coming as I do from the wilds of Tuggeranong, I am no stranger to gaping chasms appearing in my roads. It has been a point of honour knowing my rates and and other funds supplied to the ACT Government have been applied to the maintenance of Real Canberra [Civic and the Inner North].

The evidence below shows this is no longer the case! Not only is this a pot-hole of considerable size, but it is clear the integrity or the surrounding road is compromised.

I call on the Ministers responsible for the Roads, the Arts and even the entire Territory to work together to remedy this travesty.

Oh wait . . .

JC: it is good that after keeping this thread alive for 4 days now, we are back to being civil to each other. Seems we are about at the point where we just agree to disagree, and I can continue to wage my war on the Assembly to ensure that it gives Roads ACT adequate money to do this better. So my kids and yours can play outside, so people living near arterial roads have less noise, etc etc.

Because I don’t ever accept “that is just the way it is” – give me a status quo that I don’t think makes sense and I’m not likely to let go of it.

Perhaps we can move on to more important issues such as what to do about these damn yetis? Perhaps if we got them onto Lite’n’Easy they wouldn’t do so much damage?

And thanks – you’ve helped get me bumped up to “Veteran”. Woo hoo!

Fair enough you old veteran. BTW I don’t accept the “that is just the way it is” thing either. I try to look at most things from all angles. With the road resealing issue, if all a road needs is to be resealed rather than resheeted (at great expense) then I rather have the side effects of resealing and the finite amount of money we pay as taxes, rates etc used on far better things.

I mean it is like a 5 year old car that needs the cam belt replaced. You can either do nothing and hope it doesn’t break, replace the belt at say $500 (resealing) or replace the whole thing for $3000+ (resheeting). I know what I and most people would do.

I will admit I don’t like the way our government wastes some of our money or indeed when they are being cheapskates when they need to spend a little extra and do something properly the first time, GDE for example. But I don’t expect the best of everything, for example schools in every suburbs if it is something that is not needed and wastes money.
