Kakadu dream­ing

NT News - - OPINION -

Just op­po­site fish­er­man’s wharf there is a large piece of va­cant land that peo­ple use for carpark­ing. It can hold 70 or 80 cars by the look of it.

But now it has rained, it is acres of puddles and a sea of mud, so now it can only hold 20 or 30 cars, which puts pres­sure on other carparks around the CBD. So in­stead of build­ing an un­der­ground carpark for sev­eral mil­lions, why not dump some truck­loads of spoil to make it a dome shape to shed wa­ter? Then a few loads of gravel to make it all weather? In fact, if the un­der­ground carpark is still be­ing ex­ca­vated, then that spoil could be dumped there for free! Makes per­fect sense to me.
