Trolleys holding station at the Assembly gates

Share Canberra's trusted news:


Last week we reported with some concern that a Target shopping trolley was threatening an invasion of the Legislative Assembly and wondered what a trolley-based Assembly would look like.

This week we can report that a Target trolley remains resolutely in position, despite our legislators walking past it for a week. (or possibly someone keeps abandoning trolleys at the same spot.

Fortunately on Ainslie Avenue this afternoon an heroic trolley collector was hard at work ridding the streets of the trolley menace.

  1. Congratulations on trying to shame the government into introducing improved laws on feral shopping trolleys. In the USA removal of a “cart” from a shopping precinct is theft. Seems to work in our recent observations.
