The Republic of Sydney has today begun feverishly ripping up it’s newly installed Light Rail tracks.
Following the project reaching the completion stages of testing, the NSW Government has confirmed that they will now be ‘selling all of the infrastructure to Perth, or maybe like Hobart or something’ over the coming months.
In the vein of Governments and projects of the past, like the Monorail in the country’s worst city, the poorly thought out project will be wrapped up.
“We have spoken to Perth, and they think they could offer to buy the tracks, wires, trams and everything else for about 10% of the price we paid,” a NSW government spokesperson said.
“We haven’t locked that deal in yet, but we’ve started ripping all the tracks out of the ground anyway, because we are going to keep this shit show going for another few months.”
The spokesperson explained that the Government will be using a different company to rip up the tracks and get everything ready for sale.
“We did a private tender process and only notified one company that we were doing it and they gave us a great price, so we are going with them,” the said.
“We’ll try and make some money back on the land and property we acquired to build the project, but obviously a lot of family members, connections and business acquaintances need to get their hands on some prime real estate for cheap, so we’ll just see how we go.”
Despite only being 12 hours old, the removal process is already running behind schedule and looks set to blowout drastically in regards to the budget and the timeline over the coming months and years.
