Chief Minister Stanhope is triumphantly announcing a $2 million upgrade of the Cotter Road out of the $200 million road upgrades budget for this financial year.
So what’s being done? Well this bit gets interesting:
“This upgrade to a two-kilometre stretch of pavement of the Cotter Road will provide motorists with a smoother and safer road that will be better able to resist the loads from trucks carrying materials to the new Cotter Dam,” Mr Stanhope said.
Surely the Cotter Dam expansion budget should be paying for this then?
