Busted Pipe Blues

Water MainIn other pedestrian-realm related news, water’s been burbling up from a water main break on the west sidewalk of 18 block Hamilton St. for close to a week now, if not longer (picture above).

And while some design work has been done by Harvard and the City, an upgrade and renovation to the east side breezeway on the Scarth St. Mall that was scheduled to be done by the second quarter of 2013 has yet to get going. Hopefully something will be done before winter sets in because last year the worn out floor, which slopes dramatically in spots, proved treacherous — especially when it was wet from people tracking in snow.

  1. Wait more to come this winter with all the 100 year old pipes in the ground.

    – $450 million city debt (and counting).
    – A $6 million dollar City Plaza now at $24 million, and counting.
    John Hopkins (Chamber of Commerce) said it’s 83% in cost over runs – built by “private” companies.
    – $300 million for a stadium (maybe).
    – $224 million for a wastewater treatment plant (maybe) possibly going to a “foreign private” company to build, operate and whatever else sucking hundreds of million$ out of Regina taxpayers for the next 30 years.

    Our crumbling infrastructure continues to crumble beneath our feet.

    People get what they deserve.

  2. This city is in trouble I’m getting out of here soon! Taxes are going to really rise with that Stadium coming in way over 300 mil, and the pension fund with city workers ever gets funded, etc, etc.!
