signpostThe Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development (DIRD) is turning heads here at WasteWatch.

Its aim is to facilitate local partnerships between all levels of government and local communities; and provide good governance in the Australian territories.

Sounds great, right?

In keeping with their aims, a sum of $79,200 has been granted to deliver Road Safety Awareness courses in… Indonesia.

Huh? Indonesia?

While we celebrate globalisation here at WasteWatch, we can’t help feeling that entirely separate sovereign nations don’t quite fall under the remit of facilitating local partnerships with local communities.

Call us pedantic but it seems that in searching for the Great Ocean Road, the DIRD found themselves on The Silk Road instead!
