Tharwa Bridge re-opens

By johnboy 28 August 2008 23

Tharwa Drive might be bidding for the title of most murderous road in the ACT. But at least it goes somewhere now with the bridge to Tharwa re-opening.

The de facto mayor of Tharwa, and CAP candidate for the upcoming election, Val Jeffery, has signaled his pleasure at this development.

But that hasn’t stopped him having a spray about the process:

    “We’re all utterly disgusted that it has taken three years of mismanagement and lies to get to this stage.”

    “After three years waiting, it has taken only five months to get the work done and this could have, and should have, happened three years ago,” Mr Jeffery said.

    “While the government has delayed, two lives have been lost and there have been multiple serious injuries on the mongrel dangerous detour needlessly imposed on the community.”

What’s Your opinion?

Oh, and since we’ve wandered way off topic here, can I drag it back to something that’s on another topic which has passed the limit whereby IE users can’t post anymore.

Farking non-indicating is definitely* a Sydney disease just as much if not more than Canberra. Started before I got to Campbelltown and was rife out to Parramatta and in to Balmain through peak hour traffic. My statistical analysis shows the worst offenders for a combination of speeding and non-indicating are trades vehicles. My full report will be in the next ‘Traffic Pedantry Monthly’ complete with pie charts and pivot tables.

* That’s how you spell it kiddies — no ‘a’ in ‘definitely’.

And yes, I’ve been up close and personal with the Mississipi (sp?) and wouldn’t touch it with one of those ten foot barge poles we always seemed to have lying around the house when I was younger. Can’t think why I took it to the states on my honeymoon.

(*Steps away from further references about barge poles and honeymoons…*)

In the film, the something that was thrown was the protagonist’s (“singer’s”) doll, from memory. And Billy Joe was engaged in…. oh, someone’s covered that bit already in this thread … hence his throwing himself into the river.
