Not so vital

I got a flash brochure in my letter box this week from the State Government with glowing reports about how they are “revitalising” the inner city. Without going into whether this is a good or bad idea, the disparity did strike me – while the inner city gets $500 million for “revitalisation”, the outer suburbs get a stonking $280 million spent on a swathe of concrete and tarmac through the bushland that takes away our our cycle and pedestrian paths.

Revitalising Newcastle.
