Random Pics

Not only are the regional train tracks ready at Southern Cross Station, across the footbridge new tram tracks are being laid and platform stops are being built at Docklands. Sadly it is not an extension to the tram system as the existing Docklands tracks will be removed. I don't really know how it will all work when it is completed, but it is supposed to make for better public spaces.

What a strange hat this apartment building is wearing. It almost makes the building look Asian. I wonder if it was original or added later. I really don't think it works well.


  1. Aparently the tram tracks will make the road straighter and grander. I really don't understand why they didn't just do it properly the first time. As part of the redevelopment, the big palm trees are being replaced by norfolk island pines to give that seaside look.

  2. Well AR, the tracks have been there for what? Ten years? Not sure. Yes, get it right the first time, but who could have predicted the failure of the area what would go on to be.
