$110,000 gay pride rainbow crossing removed for $30,000

Earlier this year, the City of Sydney Council allocated $110,000 of ratepayers money for a "one month trial" of a "rainbow crossing" in Sydney's Taylor Square.

Why it would cost a staggering $110,000 for a one month trial of a crossing is beyond me, but to make matters worse... it now has to be removed. For a further $30,000:
Roads and Ports Minister Duncan Gay has ruled out retaining the crossing due to safety issues, including instances of people lying on the road to take photographs.

Aren't you glad your money is being spent so wisely?
