Shiels v Skiels! Street sign madness in Curtin

By johnboy - 14 April 2011 5

Shiels Place

DaveB has sent in these two photos with this note:

I let Canberra Connect know that the street sign at the corner of Throssell Street & Shiels Place was missing.

The street sign has now been replaced, but one side says ‘Shiels Pl’, the other, Skiels Pl’.

Skiels place

Quite the achievement.

It’s stories like this that some days make me feel as though life in Canberra is pretty cushy if this is banner news. I saw a front page story in the Crimes a while back about a minister opening a new bus stop.

I haf dificulty speling to, and usualy boubel cheque befor I print or post somthing.

It looks like they need to learn to check twice then paint and install once, as I have noticed a few other articles similar to this. I hope they are embarrassed at TAMMS.
