why things don't get done -

Where I live, the bicycle paths need fixing.  A simple application of asphalt would do.  A major part of the bike path is under water at high tide certain times of year so it takes a beating and a small uplift could fix that.  Instead, we have grandiose plans discussed and discussed.  Expensive consultants who don't know the area are flown in.  Let's tunnel through the mountain.  A sky way is suggested.   All along, a simple re-paving could make the paths more usable.  When it rains, the bike-walking path near me is puddles and mud.

I know there are good consultants more than worth their cost but we are so bogged down in bureaucracy at times it is hard not to get discouraged.
