After reading the story in the Canberra Times the other day about the two rival factory outlet centres being built in Canberra (one being the Brand Depot at the Canberra Airport, the other the DFO at EpiCentre on Canberra Avenue), I hunted down the website of Brand Depot to see what other information was available. (I was bored, OK?)
Anyway, according to the Brand Depot website, Brand Depot is situated “at the intersection of Canberraâ€™s ring road (Majura Road/Monaro Highway) and Canberraâ€™s main east â€“ west road (Parkes Way/Pialligo Avenue)”.
Canberra’s ring road?
They refer to it again on a map.
Whoever heard of this being Canberra’s ring road? Parts of this “ring road” aren’t even built yet (the GDE). A bit of creative marketing by the people at the Airport to promote the location of their new shopping mall? I guess “at the intersection of Canberra’s ring road and main east-west road” sounds better than “out behind the airport, on the way to Goulburn”.
