YES.

Council already has this project on the books. Let’s get on with it now before we have a serious incident in our downtown area.

When Colin Mayes was mayor, the Ross Street Underpass Project already had the funding in place for the project from DCC costs from the development of the foreshore properties on the north and east side of the tracks.

Due to second guessing and stonewalling, the project will now cost us considerably more than what the initial estimates were. Any further delays will only create greater expense and greater liability in the event of a disaster.
