$ 29b worth of work planned for North

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

Good grief, if I had a dol­lar for ev­ery time Townsville was ‘‘ con­firmed’’ as an eco­nomic pow­er­house ( only to have a sig­nif­i­cant por­tion of those projects qui­etly shelved – or nois­ily, in the case of Flin­ders Plaza), I could re­tire. Hon­estly, folks, you only get to ‘‘ con­firm’’ some­thing once. Re­con­firm, maybe, or even re­in­force, un­der­line, etc. That aside, are you se­ri­ously in­clud­ing a 35 year pro­ject’s cost in your tally? Why not RE­ALLY push the boat out and say that 2 tril­lion dol­lars will be spent over the next 400 years? Now THAT would be a head­line! I know suc­cess breeds suc­cess, but Townsville En­ter­prise is grasp­ing at some se­ri­ous straws here. And we’d bet­ter hope China’s de­mand for our min­ing out­put doesn’t ever, ever slow down ( which of course, one day it will), or this place is to­tally hosed. Posted by: Paul An­der­son of Pim­lico Please! Rocky Springs to take 35 years to be fin­ished? When does it start? Stop re­peat­ing these claims. How about ‘‘ real’’ ar­ti­cles, where the Bul­letin makes the Townsville City Coun­cil ac­count­able for where our huge rate pay­ments go! Posted by: S Richards of Deer­a­gun Yep, we have money for this and we have money for that, money, money, money. Big not­ers, yep new en­ter­tain­ment cen­tre, un­real, hooray, won­der­ful, real pow­er­house, love it – WHAT ABOUT THE ROADS? Posted by: Frank First pri­or­ity is to save lives, spend the money where it’s needed. THE BLOODY ROADS, ya bunch of clowns. Posted by: Al­bert
