I know it was a quaint vestige from a bygone era, but what has happened to the Australian Federal Police’s Bicycle Education Centre in Belconnen?
I drove past there yesterday (Rae Street) and noticed that all the education centre signage is gone, and that it is very unkempt looking with weeds and long grass everywhere. It looks like a Lilliputian ghetto!
And furthermore, just a few metres north of here, still in Rae Street, what is happening to the building site adjacent to (and part of?) the Belconnen Lakeview Club? The steel girders have been there exposed for so long, they are beginning to rust! And the verge all around the site facing Rae and Bayles Streets is extremely unsightly – weeds as tall as Lauren Jackson, and rubbish strewn everywhere.
This part of Belconnen – in the so-called town centre – is looking very down-at-heel indeed.
