Canberra Centre carpark not for big cars?

By MrM - 28 April 2007 114

Did any of the architects of the carpark in the new part of the Canberra Centre actually think about the space that might be needed to drive a car into and out of it?

I used the new carpark today instead of the usual older carpark – which is bad enough – and found that on the way in, I had basically no space either side of the car in the entry lanes. The 90 degree left hand turn just before the ticket machine was almost impossible – my heart was in my mouth worrying about whether or not I was going to scratch one of my wheels, but in the end I got away with just scuffing one of my tyres on the left hand side gutter. (Gutters which aren’t really necessary other than to deliniate the lanes, by the way…)

Now, you may wonder what sort of gargantuan behemoth I drive that I had trouble with – well, it’s not some sort of massive German luxo-barge or big Yank Tank from the 1960s, it’s a current model Holden Commodore. In other words, Australia’s best selling car last year. I’m hardly going to be Robinson Crusoe with this problem, then.

Amusingly, some of the parking spaces near the mall entrance are designated ‘Small Car Only’. Any chance of putting a sign up at the carpark entrance saying the same thing?

What’s Your opinion?

Hey, as you guys have pointed out. I hang out with the, let me see if I get it all based on your comments:

“a crowd of eurotrash euro tin driving latte sipping queer hairdressing public servent facists”

Does that sum it up?

And you all hang out in your group of:

“pretty perfect commodore driving car humping beer swilling drunkard tradies”

Sound right?

I’d rather hang out with my crowd than your “car loving” crowd. Oh and guess what, I just got promoted to the SES two months ago. I get a car, Toyota Aurion as part of the deal! Suck Shit you commodore driving patsy communist conformist mother f_______!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just need a brown nose and be able to say yes many times while nodding.

but for one to get to SES, doesn’t one have to have a very insular view – a result from being in the PS for many many years…

Its a worry when he has such a narrow minded arrogant view. Its smacks of very little life experience in general outside of his own insular view of the world.

Thought I’d throw in a third post, it seems to be a trend lately.

The guy humping his car – Hate to cop the exhaust burns.

And this person is apparently a Senior Exec in government. Makes you wonder.

I have driven VE Commodores before, not noticeably bigger that the Forrester. I have also driven Landcruisers, vans and trucks. Bigger than Commodores. The carpark is wide enough.

Three comment nutter.

Indeed.

Special G 8:19 am 03 May 07

I still had more room than I knew what to do with and could weave back and forth.

My comment stands. Learn how to drive.
