Matches the ALP governments in each state, and now federally.
Brisbane City Hall was jerry built, I'm not blaming the current government, but I don't have time to check out who was in authority when it was built. (It was built during the depression I think. (Picture link information here.))
Concrete used in the iconic building was bolstered with charcoal, making it about 12 to 15 per cent of the strength used in modern high rises.It is a beautiful buiding.
A caller on radio said that they should look at the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney which was restored, renovated and refurbished years ago at a cost of $60M. It is now an icon in Sydney, and a really beautiful place to visit.
Can this be done in Brisbane for the Town Hall? Is it worth the $200M cost? Is it fair to charge the ratepayers another hit to restore the building? (Recent picture of Brisbane City Hall from Wiki.)
