…you’d better drive the other way.
Back in February I attended a Senate Estimates Committee hearing where bollards and parking were discussed. As well as these fascinating topics, I vaguely remember the possibility of Parliament Dr becoming one way being mooted.
Well from 6.30 this morning it’s happened. You may now only drive around Parliament House in an anticlockwise direction, ensuring that you pass at least one entrance you don’t want to be at each day. However, you can do it 10km/h faster than you have been able to for the past year or so.
I’m not sure if this measure is a security one or more to do with the lack of space on the road caused by people stopping because they haven’t been able to meet people up near the entrances since the bollards were installed.
