The Magic Roundabout of Alice in Blunderland

Recently installed – at a cost to the ratepayer – traffic islands at the intersection of Undoolya Road and Sturt Terrace will make way for a new roundabout – at a cost to the taxpayer. L'il Antz childcare centre is on the left corner, Casa Nostra pizzeria on the right.

The announcement that Alice Springs is getting a new roundabout at the intersection of Undoolya Road and Sturt Terrace, costing $300,000 warrants careful scrutiny, argues ALEX NELSON. Do safety issues at the intersection really require this expensive infrastructure? Is a bridge to cross the river at this point still on the cards, as mooted during the time of the 11th Alice Sprints Town Council? If so, the roundabout would have to go. In any case, traffic islands at the intersection installed at ratepayers' expense will have to go. Wouldn't a simpler and cheaper solution achieve the same results in terms of safety for the childcare centre on the corner. It came some time ago from Greatorex MLA Matt Conlan but he seems to have forgotten all about it. The decisions to build the roundabout is "symptomatic of what is wrong with the governance and administration of Alice Springs and Central Australia", says Mr Nelson.
