Simon Corbell is blowing his own steam whistle on the virtues of his consultation for the planned Capital Metro line between Gungahlin and Civic.
And my golly gosh won’t it fix a load of things:
“Capital Metro is not just about moving people. It is a catalyst for realising the vision of a sustainable, modern and creative Canberra. Revitalising Northbourne Avenue and the City Centre will bring a wide range of social, economic and environmental benefits to all Canberrans.
“Light rail is proving a powerful tool to revitalise and reshape cities. It is not just a form of transport; permanent tracks in the ground provide business certainty, encourage investment and connect people and places. Capital Metro is important in delivering other Government priorities such as the City Plan and City to Lake projects,” Mr Corbell said.
Sadly it won’t mow my lawn or gratify me sexually, but it seems to have everything else covered!
