Why bother when nothing gets done and nobody implements anything anyway? I’ve only lived in Canberra for a year and I’m already planning my exit strategy. These public transport changes are the final nail in the coffin. Unlike Action (who apparently believe that at least 30 minutes of extra travel every day is an improvement), I can see the writing on the wall. If I’m still here in two years it will only be because I’ve undergone a full frontal lobotomy. No public transport, no fast broadband, one of the highest levels of smoking per head of population in Australia and one of the highest costs of living? Sorry for sounding a little disillusioned but I expected more for my $500,000 investment in a supposedly new suburb in the nation’s capital.
