But I suppose Rod Hook is more than happy to see a fool parted with his money.
This will be an interesting scenario.
It's true that Captain Hook has the previous form of shaking down the people of SA for hundreds of millions of dollars of wastage on state-run infrastructure projects.
My guess is that he will quickly discover that Geber keeps a far tighter grip on his cheque book than Pat Conlon did and he'll walk away with nothing more than his initial retainer payment.
I heard on the grapevine that the crossing at Murray Street in Gawler will be removed as part of the electrification project.
I hope not.
GREP is already way over budget without splashing around cash on out of scope nonsense like that. Take care of the thousands and the millions will take care of themselves.
No need to do anything more than seal over of the crossing next time there are roadworks scheduled in the area, nicely covering over the rails and leaving them protected from the elements pending a potential future re-use. In the event of a genuine attempt to reinstate the line, scraping off the bitumen at the level crossings would be the easiest part of the whole project.
