First we learn the city might spend $100 million to fix the old Northern Avenue bridge so GEsters don't have to worry about getting stuck in traffic. Tonight, the Globe reports our local titans of industry can't wait for GE to come to town so we can get us a helipad - one that the state is looking at building as part of the $120 million in infrastructure it promised GE, because what the hell kind of world-class city doesn't have a helipad?
The downtown business community has gone without a public-use helipad for more than 15 years. But that could be about to change. GE’s pending arrival has jump-started the conversation about building one.
They quote some hand servant to the ruling class that "it’s time to consider this as a transportation system amenity."
Wonder if it'll take CharlieCards.
