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.”
