Public money spent on construction projects which aren't needed and can't be maintained
I'm sure you all have examples of construction projects which have cost a fortune and now lie unused and un-maintained. The World is littered with mega failed construction projects which often were built for political gains or to satisfy egos. The wrong project built in the wrong place. Projects that cost the public a huge amount of money and now there's no money to maintain the new facility. Money that could have been better spent elsewhere. Classic examples of poor project management.
Read this ABC News story about a $120 million airport that is empty most days of the week and a $500 highway to nowhere. Million dollar gambles with public money which may never payoff. Infrastructure which cannot be maintained.
