Has anyone else wondered (or can anyone explain) why it is that on our great and glorious single lane GDE, in the section between Belconnen Way and Gininderra Drive, time was taken (and money spent) to put in some small “garden beds” of bushes and little trees in the middle section between the roads, around about where Canberra Stadium is?
For those whose response is “as a sight screen” or “as a crash barrier” I have to ask – only that 70 meter stretch?
I only wonder now because on Thursday and Friday last week I see we also spent some cash ripping the now well established shrubs out of the ground.
Obviously, now that the work is going to commence on duplicating the GDE, they’re in the way. They were always going to be in the way.
So why were they there? How much money was wasted planting something that would only need to be removed once the road was upgraded to what was intended?
