Comment on Power Water not saying what’s in overflowing sewage by John.

The water shown near the Stuart Highway has nothing to do with St Marys Creek water. It is from the rain and St Marys Creek runs way over the back of the new blocks.

OK from environment watchdog for Ammaroo phosphate mine
In reply to Dr Who. What has this mine got to do with the Artesian Basin? It is not even close to the basin and would not be drawing water from it.

Harts Range to Stuart Highway to be “all bitumen”
In reply to Surprised. There are plenty of rugged roads around Alice Springs without having the Plenty Highway one of them.
A lot of business people (including stations) would use this road to get their goods from Queensland and also sending cattle to Queensland. As the road becomes rugged each year they have to go to Tennant and onto Mt Isa-Winton etc. Winton is 450 kilometres closer if you go through Boulia, so imagine how much money is saved each trip.

Bruce. When the Indonesians bought Riverend and Inverway people were then saying that they would be here long term but in a short time it was back in Australian hands.
I also suspect a lot (not all) of the recent buyers will sell out once high cattle prices come off the boil. In WA right now there is a recent high priced sale that is having their problems.
