I didn't think think we are a Banana Republic in Australia, but we sure are not good at fixing things that we all pay high Taxes for.
I am talking about our Road, yes I know we are a big Country and only have x amount of Tax payers, but we have had one Bridge under water last year January 2011 and because it is an old Bridge has not been re-opened.
Needless to say the newer Bridge is down to one lane in and out of Petrie. They just closed the Bridge and this is how it has been for 12 month.
The traffic going in and out of Petrie is a nightmare, there is another way that could be used but it gets flooded with any decent rainfall and the Highway going north is a nightmare at the best of times. Sitting in that traffic and having to put up with that as well as bad tempered drivers in not a lot of fun.
This is really grinding on the good old nerves, apparently the Bridge is not being fixed or rebuilt is because Sate and Local Council are arguing about who is paying, well let me tell you I and every one paying HIGH Car registrations is paying so get on with it.
We also get massive pot holes in new roads after a good down poor....
I have written to the local Member and we see what will come of it, I told her not to write back until she has an answer.
The other thing I am thinking of starting is a Petition going. These Politicians need a kick in the you know where.....
Thanks for listening, if anyone knows of any regulations regarding a Petition could you email me please....
And you know there are still so many people without their Homes after the floods due to the Insurances playing silly buggers too, my heart goes out to them.
Have a good one
The next email is going to the local paper..... can you tell I am fed up?
