You don’t have to travel to outer space to find a black hole mystery

WHOSE HOLE? The mystery hole in the pavement on the corner of Worrigee Street and Haigh Avenue that has been left unrepaired since September last year.IT’S not Shoalhaven City Council’s, it doesn’t belong to the RMS and it’s not Telstra’s but the broken pit cover in the footpath at the corner of Worrigee Street and Haigh Avenue remains just that, broken.It has been that way since at least September last year when it was first reported to council by a man who injured his leg after stepping into it.Council then reported it to Telstra thinking it was a service pit for their equipment.Last month Telstra confirmed it was not theirs.RMS was the next step but it said it did not belong to them either.Brett Coles from Worrigee Street Fruit Market thinks a commonsense approach is needed.The man who fell into the hole back in September came into his store to complain.“It’s ridiculous that it has been left like this for so long,” Mr Coles said.“At the end of the day it is a dangerous hole in a footpath and while there aren’t a lot of pedestrians walking there I think council should just fix it.“If they’re that hard up for money they could chase it up later.“Someone has put a flimsy cover over it now but that won’t be enough to stop the drunk people walking through there at night from getting into it.“Apart from that it would be just nice to have that cleaned up and get rid of the safety barrier,” he said.This story Administrator ready to work first appeared on Nanjing Night Net.
