In my opinion and that of many people, Docklands planning has been a classic example of how not to go about urban development. Some even call it a disaster, where developers have been allowed to build tall towers with little restriction. Nevertheless, attempts are being made to retrofit what should have been part of building the development. Docklands is far from complete.
Bunjil on his plinth sat on some nice grass, with a few trees around him but I believe he is to be moved. Poor Bunjil, forlorning surveying the avarice of mankind.
An effort to be interesting with this office building at least separates it from many others at Docklands.
Flinders Street Station is much loved and is about to undergo some renovations and a repaint. It is primarily used by suburban trains. The Spencer Street Station for country and interstate trains that I remember was never loved. It was replaced and renamed Southern Cross Station and it is not loved either, although it is not a bad place for trainspotting with its raised walkways. Here is one of the platforms with quite adequate lighting.
For some strange reason this platform has inadequate lighting, hence the generator. I think there used to be more generators running lights than what there are now. I do not understand why there is not proper lighting and I reckon generators have been powering lighting at the station for over a year. Lordy, as if the diesel fumes aren't bad enough at the station, let's add even more fumes. Not even the non-professional public transport experts Daniel Bowen and Marcus Wong seem to know.
