What a waste of money...

My mom pointed out something to me today about how wasteful the govt is... Our area is undergoing the renovation to build lifts that stopped on all the levels.. This is supposedly to make all the housing flats handicap-friendly... But my mom noticed that instead of building slopes that lead up to the lifts, the workers built steep staircases. So much for being handicap-friendly... This means the handicapped people actually need to go one big round to find a slope to go up before they can reach the lift.

She concluded that in the future, the govt will then once again do renovation works to change the stairs to slopes... Wasting time and money when they should have do it in the initial stage. Let's not forget about the bus shelters that do not seem to be able to give us much protection from the heavy rain, even though it looked modernly nice... Now i know where all the tax money went to....

  • I don't know what handicap here refer to - people on wheelchairs, using walking sticks, elderly with poor legs, eyesights etc..But I think steps are better than slopes.

    In HK bus stops don't even have shelters

    Anyway, I almost tripped on the steps today so i still concluded that the steps are EVIL... heehee.. :)
