Farewell the Belconnen Bus Interchange

By johnboy - 23 April 2009 58

[First filed: April 22, 2009 @ 14:55]

These are the final days of one of the ugliest and most dismal buildings ever erected (and made worse by slovenly maintenance post self government).

The Belconnen Bus Interchange is finally being torn down.

There’s also an exhibition on in the Belconnen Community Centre.

There’s going to be a grand finale on Friday night from 4-8pm if you haven’t yet had a chance to pay your respects.

Slideshow below:

I am curious though, why tear down the old one before you’ve built the new one? Cart before the horse…..

@MrMagoo: Have you seen this page at the ACTION website?

Ta Random, I hadn’t been on the site for a while not sure when that was posted, but most people I chat to on the bus don’t know about this at all.

I always said you could drop an atomic bomb on the Belconnen town centre and do a billion dollars worth of improvements.

I agree with BerraBoy and DMD. I’ll miss it too, although it makes me sad to see it in such a shocking state of disrepair.

All this fluff and bluster about the old interchange. I have one point to riase, what the hellhappens when the interchange does close. No one seems to really know how things will work post the interchange’s closure. Again ACTION servicing the people yet again….NOT!!

Also, I think I saw you taking the photos. I may have given you a dirty look, as I usually do when people are taking photos in my direction. I think in one I can be seen from a distance.

C’mon DMD, you were one of the kids getting their face painted weren’t you?

Brings back memories of November, 1989.

I still remember the collection of interchange folk that used to amuse me such as:

Crazy Vietnamese guy who did No.2’s in the phone area
Bombers (gravity defying hats)
The Nash Brothers – remember them anyone?
The great Nash Bash
Etc

Anyone else have fond/funny memories?

“There are places I remember all my life,
Though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain.
All these places have their moments
Of lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I loved them all.”

Sums up my feelings and experiences surrounding this interchange perfectly.

Cold, grimy, dismal, grey…

Like something from a cold war era eastern bloc country.

it won’t be missed.

It surely won’t be missed.
