Do you like paying twice for shoddy work that has to be fixed?
In May 2014 BMCC spent $705,000 on the new Katoomba and Waratah Streets Roundabout. 6 months later in December 2014 it was falling to bits. The quality of work was appalling. Some of the concrete wasn’t even finished with professional cementing tools which give smooth even curves and surfaces.
Soon afterwards in January and February 2015 Blue Mountains Council spent considerable amount of your money trying to fix the faults. It is still pretty rough. They should have got it right first time.
Have a look at these photos to see how Blue Mountains City Council wastes your money.
The thermoplastic line marking by Blue Mountains City Council fell off because it was applied before the concrete had fully cured
The amateurish standard of workmanship was almost impossible to believe. One worker said to me “Why should we care?” A few other BMCC workers have told me “You either stop caring or you leave”.
Incompetence starts at the top and it works it’s way down. I believe the vast majority of workers want to do a good day’s work and want to have pride in their job. I lay the blame squarely at the toxic BMCC administration for this mess.
