I am looking forward to the day this anachronistic event leaves Melbourne. A fifty million dollar government subsidy - what a waste of taxpayer money. Better nurse-patient ratios instead, please

I get what you are saying but in terms of sport in Melbourne the GP is cheap - it is also credited with helping us get the comm games.  Its also silly to think the money would go to public sector jobs instead.  It would just go to another big event to promote Melbourne.

As a former queens road resident - 150 metres from the track I used to think it was awesome once the road closures started and we could do team time trial training on the fast surface with only rollerbladers for company.

Flyovers do scare the pets though.
