As we all know, the ACT Government have a huge dislike and loathing for anything to do with the airport.
As such it comes as no surprise that Simon has chucked a minor tantie about the developments that seem to be bounding forward like an startled gazelle on the veld.
Personally I am rather ambivalent about the whole thing as, if it turns into another Sydney airport, ie, a shopping mall and car park with a runway attached, I’m still not going to go shopping there.
However, Simon does have a point.
And yet, does he have any right to complain, even if it may take big money away from his pet projects in Civic. maybe they’ll not only make sure buses don’t go there, but also charge a toll for people wanting to go there.
Interestingly, Mr Byron, airport manager, says the decision makes the airport more competitive.
I ask, competitive with what? Other airports? Belconnen Mall?
A nothing statement if ever I’ve heard one.
