The race is on

The RTA traffic light cabinet, letter box and Energy Australia kiosk pictured below are all within 50 metres of each other. All were reported on Tuesday. I go past these every working day, so it will be interesting to see how long it takes each agency to clean up their asset.

Ever wondered why it costs so much to remove graffiti? For each of these assets, a separate contractor will be despatched to do the clean up. That's three lots of travel time, 3 separate quotes and 3 separate bookings. Our tax dollars would go a lot further if just the two state government agencies here could be strong armed into using some sort of shared service.
