Over the last little while there has been a political storm over the signs being placed at schools which have funding under the stimulus package to build something.
The signs are too expensive, too big, need to be moved away from entrances to comply with electoral act and on it goes.
I have already put up my “Road to Recovery” road sign from the middle of nowhere.
Here’s another one:
This sign is 1000 kilometres from the nearest sizeable town and would have been trucked out from Perth 1400kms away, along with the cement needed for the posts. Labour costs are also quite expensive out bush and the time would have been better spent on the power station.
This sign is 12ft high, has the aboriginal name of the community spelt incorrectly and is on a private road to the airstrip on an aboriginal community where there are no passer bys. An exploration crew goes past it weekly for fly in and fly out workers and the community has a plane flight a week.
Why is it needed?
Have a pleasant Sunday afternoon everyone
