A historic agreement between the city of Greater Bendigo and the US government was signed today. Bendigo council announced the US government will use the bluestone bricks on Trump’s border wall.
At a press conference early this morning Australian time, Trump said: “Australia and New Zealand have always been great Allies to the U.S. The bluestones are great, they’re fantastic.”
A Bendigo council spokesperson said “Instead of a drain, we want to turn it into something future generations can enjoy like a garden or a walking path. What’s so enjoyable about a drain?”
The bluestones were selected due to their quality and rating highly on the Rock Quality Designation scale (RQD).
The undisclosed amount will be used towards creek upgrades, rebuilding the mall and making Long Gully great again.
