This is not a post in its own right, but more of an additional comment to a previous post that I made about the Gungahlin Drive Extension (GDE). Not much useful thought goes into Canberra, and here is more evidence of the single lane road that was to connect north Canberra to south Canberra - which was a short-sighted decision by the local government in Canberra.
These images were taken during Easter 2011, driving from Gungahlin towards Woden (ie. south):
Due to lack of proper planning, the local Canberra resident had to put up with delays and bottlenecks in traffic while using the GDE. And from these images, they would have to put up with them even more, as they have moved entire sections of road, and had to widen and reconstruct certain bridges.
I hope all Australians now realize why taxes are high. What else funds this stupidity ($85.5 million worth of it)?
