Section 84 Construction Photos

March 17th, 2006 at 03:30pm

On top of the old carpark between the City Markets and the old Griffin Centre is a new extension to the Canberra Centre which is currently under construction.

From the top of the City Markets carpark the construction looks like this.

Now from ground level, a sign advertising the expansion.

The construction is filled with “peep holes” around the side which enables people to see what is happening inside without being inside, this first photo isn’t very clear though.

Looking down Bunda Street you can just see some peep holes and a lot parked vehicles and cranes.

And some from the peep holes. Note that it was a lot darker than the photos indicates, but the camera compensated for that. I did not use a flash.

Then I took a photo of two cranes, one from Bovis Lend Lease and the other from The Men From Marrs.

    Holy Moly. I am posting via proxy from an iBook. This page taking a while to load. Did you ask fora ride in the crane Samuel? It all looks a bit tinny to me JohnB1_B5. Did you take a picture of the Women from Venus crane Samuel?

    No Chuck I did not interupt the workers or enter the worksite.

    Which bit looks tinny?

    There was no such crane, only a Men From Marrs crane. Information about The Men From Marrs can be found here

    It was a joke Samuel. I was referring to a book by Dr John Gray called ‘Men are from Mars. Women are from Venus’. A self help book for idiots who don’t have a clue about how to relate to others. I think he wrote while sunbathing next to his parents pool. Maybe John has read it?
