The towers of Belconnen

By 16 December 2011 45

belco towers

Two containers tipped on their ends have recently appeared in the carpark adjacent to the Belconnen Community Bus station, fronting Benjamin Way.

I approached a workman affixing some panelling over the door at the bottom (at the rear away from the street0 and asked him what they were.

He advised that he didn’t know, and that i should speak to the council.

This is the new multi-storey car park; the last remaining bit of space left after every other car park and spare piece of land has been built on.

“My name is Katie Gallagher, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”

The next line is fairly fitting given the talent pool in the ACT Labor Govt:
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Given its location to Immigration – perhaps it is a new detention center for unexpected boat arrivals.

Markers for the height of the buildings going there….to aid in community consultation?

Mr ttguy,

Thank you for contacting ACTION.

These vertical containers are not part of the Interchange, ACTION is unaware of their purpose.

ACTION has been able to verify however, that they are NOT some type of art work and may have been placed there for advertising purposes by the developer of nearby apartments.

Thank you for taking the time to write to ACTION.

Kind regards

Y M Clarke – ACTION Customer Service

I think these are the same monoliths that appear in 2001 a Space Odyssey. But since I never understood what these were in that movie I still have no insight into what they are!

It’s a lift well. They’ll build a lovely new block of flats around it.

They are using them to mount signage for the new building works in the area.

Are they going to mount a ferris wheel on top to complete Belconnen’s twin city agreement with Prypiat?

Sigh what happened to the days of just hanging it off the crane and on the fences around the edge? Now we need to build gigantic towers to put advertising on, really? I guess there are no planning restrictions on it thought considering its obviously not as high as the finished site will be?
