These Smart developments cost substantially less to maintain, each year growing cleaner, safer and more effective as the money usually spent on maintenance can be used for further improvements.

One of the first things you notice when visiting any one of these councils is how well kept they are. From our largest cities, Perth, Fremantle and Bunbury, Joondalup , Stirling, Swan and Melville  to small well kept authorities like Subiaco it is easy to see the councils using sustainable foundations and bollards.  On the East Coast major authorities like Ryde, Pittwater, Waverley and Gosford central Coast council to small towns like Orange are embracing sustainable technology, building cleaner, safer, more sustainable cities.

Given the enormous amount of variables involved, its not surprising 90% of projects go over budget. A simple job can easily go over budget ( if the crew hits underground obstacles, bad traffic or bad weather conditions,  a worker is injured working in traffic, or worse still you damage underground cables or hit a gas line) destroying any well planned budget.

Authorities digging up and replacing the same items over and over again day after day, year after year, are also wasting precious resources. With road authorities consuming tonnes of carbon intensive concrete and paving supplies every single day, that ultimately end up as landfill, the impact upon our environment is a major problem for present generations, and even more so for future generations for whom these issues will be of even greater significance.
