“I think Barry O’Farrell should give it to us as a post-Bicentennial gift,” Hobart’s deputy mayor Ron Christie said.
Good on them. Our precious taxpayer dollars are frittered away on all sorts of fantastic projects, so hurrah if anything can be salvaged once they’re consigned to the tip. But why stop at the monorail? There are other landmarks that could have been salvaged if only other leaders had Mr Christie’s foresight, imagination, and dedication to the Reduce Reuse Recycle mantra.
