Ausgrid Vandals 26.4.2012

by

Ausgrid’s teams have destroyed a hundred streetscapes in Newcastle in recent weeks.Newcastle City Council claim they’re outraged by the ‘pruning’ the energy utility does to street trees but NCC won’t take the responsibility themselves so are presumably almost equally to blame.

A friend held a lone stand-in recently between a tree and lopping equipment and saved the street’s brush boxes for the time being but where were the brave locals in the street below? Presumably at work or under the belief that protest is a waste of time. Where on earth would they get that idea?

It’s been pointed out to me that it’s an industrial street so neighbours don’t live directly opposite these figs.

Thanks to Julie for the photo.

    WHY DOESN’T THE POWER COMPANY and COUNCIL APPROVE, PUTTING THE UGLY POWER POLES UNDERGROUND ! ! ! (as is, in England, and numerous countries)

    I N S T E A D of MASSACREING the TREES ON A REGULAR BASIS.
    All that money, and manpower, and equipment, they use pruning, could be put to a ONE-OFF under ground installation !!!

    P R O B L E M S O L V E D !!!
