The dawn of Northbourne’s urban meadow

urban meadow

THE heavy equipment has been busy along Northbourne Avenue and the trees are coming down to make way for the tram to Gungahlin.

In their place we’re promised an urban meadow.

Simon Corbell’s office has offered this explanation:

Nothing to do with Capital Metro at all mate. Those trees being removed are coming down because they are sick and dangerous. Much like about 300-odd of those trees over the past five years.

The consortia that will be building light rail will eventually remove and replace trees on a section by section basis. But they haven’t even signed a contract yet. Regardless of light rail those particular trees would still be being removed this week (they are unhealthy and they can’t wait until the light rail consortia can remove them).
