Train wreck in ACT Corrections, are we surprised we hear about it now?

By johnboy 21 October 2008 42

The ABC brings word of a distressingly unsurprising SNAFU with the new prison:

    ACT Attorney-General Simon Corbell says the company installing the system appears to have underestimated the complexity of the task.

    The delay is causing overcrowding in the ACT’s remand centres.

    Mr Corbell says the problem has been magnified because New South Wales jails have been temporarily unable to take ACT prisoners.

This of course is the facility “opened” with much fanfare while the election was running.

Are you as thrilled as I am that the mob installing the security system (Bovis Lend Lease) is manifestly out of its depth?

And of course we find out days after the election.

What’s Your opinion?

Ease up on the personal abuse eh TM?

Tylers: play the ball, not the man.

Both very fair calls, just making my opinion clear – but knew I was treading on thin-ice.
