Tharwa bridge open by August !

By andym - 26 March 2008 22

Rumour has it the Tharwa Bridge will be open by August. Evidently the tender to repair has been awarded and the company has inspected the bridge.

So beaurocratic bungling > 2 years, actual time to fix 5 months.

What’s Your opinion?

I should add that I find it intersting that someone could think that the government has actually handled the Tharwa Bridge issue in a timely and efficient manner.

Frankly it’s been a stuff up all along and if the Libs were in power (okay, hypothetically) then I’d gladly give it to them if they handled it so badly.

Come to think of it, an ACT Liberal government could be fun. They are bound to stuff up everything!

Totally agree on that score Mr Evil.

I hear that Jacqui Burke and Brendon Smyth were standing around outside the MLA building until 1am this morning because some woman was protesting that the ACT government wouldn’t give her disability payments.

Both Burke and Smyth may have been doing the right thing for the woman, but I wonder, was it for the right reasons?

If Thumper’s a Liberal stooge, then the Pope’s a Maori!

Just because someone doesn’t like watching Stanhope and his colleages screw the ACT, doesn’t mean they’re a Liberal stooge.

And let’s face it, just one look at the local bunch of Liberals is enough to make anyone sick!

Tom Tom

Shut up!

You’re becoming embarrassing.

tom-tom 7:25 pm 26 Mar 08

oh thumper i dont mean to berate you, i just think it’s necessary to point out for anyone who stumbles across this page that your views are those of an irelevant and unrepresentative hack…. i dont know why you are getting so touchy….
…..actually i do,… it must be hideously embarrassing to be a liberal stooge these days

Thumper 7:17 pm 26 Mar 08

If I say that I think they will stuff it up (like most things) then I’ll be soundly berated by Mr Tom Tom.

I think I may convert….

Mr Evil 5:26 pm 26 Mar 08

Now call me a cynic, but who reckons the ACT Govt will fark the repairing of the bridge up this time too?

tom-tom 4:51 pm 26 Mar 08

wow i was just expecting an insipid denial….its almost as if i hit a nerve

Thumper 4:16 pm 26 Mar 08

Damn, I forgot that I need to pay up my membership of the Liberal anti progression, conservative, right wing anti socialist, red neck, hippies must all die, stoolie club….

Thanks for reminding me.

Feel free to post your own stories at anytime….

an election later this year? that wouldn’t explain the re-emergence of prominent local regressive Johnathon Reynolds (are you seeking preselection by the way?) or liberal stoolie thumpers daily anti-stanhope/labor tirades, would it?

nah, why ever would someone think that

Thumper 3:26 pm 26 Mar 08

Nah….

What makes you say that?

Jonathon Reynolds 3:15 pm 26 Mar 08

I wonder if the sudden expediency has anything to do with an ACT election later this year?

Thumper 2:49 pm 26 Mar 08

That is excellent news.
