Zed Sesleja on the midnight disapearance of the bike paths of Curtin

By johnboy 6 September 2005 5

The people of Curtin are a bicycle loving folk in my experience, which would make all the more galling Zed Seselja’s story of the bizarre late night demolition of their facilities on cost cutting grounds.

So what’s next as belts are tightened for a second botanic gardens in a city of 300,000?

What’s Your opinion?

Mate we could have revegetated all the areas that got toasted with that money!

And then built a bike path….

And even painted it bloody green if we wished!

What about the 1.5million spent appealing Maria Doogan’s findings? I’m sure that we could build a friggin awesome bike path for 1.5 mill. What a crock.

And how much will the (SECOND) arboretum cost, again ? Tell me somebody, what does it take to get us handed back to the Commonwealth ? Shall I start petitioning the PM ?

There’s no money to repair a heavily used walking/cycling path, but the ACT Government might find the money to build a SIEV-X memorial! I love our Government.

Truly bizarre….

I like this little gem though;

“Representatives of the Department of Urban Services have told residents that the path was dangerous and in poor repair, that it was too expensive to repair and that funds were not available to replace it.”

“The dirt fire trail was suggested as a satisfactory alternative for residents”

So the old path was dangerous and to expensive to fix, and now they have a dirt fire trail? Surely a dirt fire trail is more dangerous to residents than a path?

Increasingly bizarre.

What next in this tin pot dictatorship?
