Comment on Private $25m residential project for health staff by James T Smerk.

Spot on Karen. But the thing is any business in the NT is apparently local, even the big interstate business with tree people in their local temp office.
Change the rules and make business have their main office in the NT and not a dodgy little satellite office to get them jobs to move in on.
And while you’re there award them to companies in the area of the works not old mate in Darwin taking all the Alice Springs business away further hurting the Alice.
I suppose the real local guys are a bit pricey but surely it’s good for the region.

Geez, any walking distance on that road is not safe at all.
The hospital has a huge block surely they could have built something on the grounds to keep staff safe.
Isn’t that the same spot a doctor was hit in the head with a brick many years ago?
And am I right it isn’t even on the Melanka site? Geez, again space wasted.
This Sitzler mob are cleaning up on the big juicy government money of town. I thought those mob left Alice Springs and moved to Darwin years ago.

Why stop at a street name? I mean how much do we really know about superintendent Sir Charles Todd’s wife who this town is named after?
Let’s just rewrite history and leave out the people that were bad, I’m sure that’s a good idea.
Or maybe we leave things as they are and learn from them and teach kids about these things?
I can only assume there will be an audit on all street names and the same process will take place on all streets with issues or is this just a token gesture that really means nothing?

@ Psuedo Guru. Unfortunately that will never happen as it would make a mockery of everything that was said to get it closed.
All of the future arguments for closing such sites would be undermined.
We need to create a new man made structure which can capture the imagination or inspiration for people all over the world to see.
The hard bit is coming up with such an idea.
