When it comes to the BRT / IPTS (pick your abbreviation) and the infighting my eyes tend to glaze over with exasperation at the antics of the various players – of course with so much smoke there has to be a fire which probably is fed with the stink of corruption.
Frankly the whole process should be scrapped and restarted – maybe then the call for and awarding of bids will happen in a fair environment.
In the meantime a useful and efficient addition to our city’s transport is being treated like a small child in an acrimonious divorce action and runs the real risk of costing ratepayers a further heap of moola.
I received the following e-mail from ‘Milton Peters’ with regards to the Lumen Technologies, Aurecon and political involvement in the BRT saga:
If you would like to know the facts behind BRT then go to www.facts2share.org
The whole truth and nothing but the truth!
This is what the administration and CM was trying to suppress
Enjoy our reading

There is certainly a lot of info posted on the www.facts2share.org site and I found myself wondering just who created the site and what their motivation is. Unfortunately the whois for facts2share.org is hidden behind a Contact Privacy address so I have asked the registrant to let me know why they feel the need to hide behind layers of anonymity – after all information such as this is far more credible if given out by an identifiable person.
