The bridge formerly known as red goes in

red bridge

For decades to come visitors to Canberra will be confused by reference to “The Red Bridge” which is clearly grey.

Another John has sent in these images of the construction down Molonglo Reach:

Cycling round da lake gonna be back to normal soon

If these here photos are anything to go by.

It’ll be a shame knowing that we, the cyclists, are no longer able to restrict thems what drive cars to a crawl as they come past RMC.

Chars what-ho

grey bridge

Got an image of Canberra you want to share with the world? Email it in to images@the-riotact.com .

As we ponder the bureaucracy’s tendency to paint the world grey let us enjoy Fred Smith’s wisdom on the subject of Blue Guitars.

What’s Your opinion?

So they spend a fortune removing the willows because the Tree Police have decided they’re bad. Next flood event, the quiet and very pretty pathway that went along at river-level is washed away, to the point that the road above was also undermined.

So another fortune is spent fixing this. The idiots are truly in charge.

Whilst they were good at holding the bank together, they were bad for the overall eco system. You only need to read the link above to see how bad.

This is not the only place they have been removed, since their removal from Gininderra Creek the whole creek is now alive, instead of being chocked by these plants that had no right being there. Though when it rains heavily the flow is much faster and in places spreads out more, but a small price to pay.

Now before accusing me of being a tree hugging greenie, let me assure you I am not, but for once this is one green policy I wholeheartedly agree with and the minor effect of the removal can be well managed.

The rest of the lake didn’t have its willow banks denuded by nutters from the ACT Government.
