Comment on 2.5km of the MacDonnell Ranges to be lit up by KM.

I find it very interesting that this “lightshow” is already set and has a date when it will be happening. I could think of many better ideas to spend the money as well, but guess, yes, it will look pretty. Interestingly enough though, I was told, that we cannot have solar powered lights to light up Alice itself and the bike paths for safety at night etc, because of “sensitve issues” with TOs?
Well, should be safe enough to walk along the ranges, when they are lit up in late September, then at least? Surely with money would be better invested in permanent light features for safety?
it seems like some politicians are good at digging deeper and deeper holes for themselves.
