After being in Sydney recently I was, as usual, taken by the effectiveness of the monorail and its ability to effectively and efficiently get people around the CBD, namely darling harbour. And they still wouldn’t let me eat the cute little blue fish they have at The Blue Fish Restaurant. false advertising I reckon.
Anyway, they have a monorail. I want one.
Given this, I propose that the ACT come up with their own monorail thus removing the need for cars to be driven anywhere at lunch times and indeed possibly leading to cars being parked outside the CBD, thus allowing it to be less conjested, which is something I think everyone would agree is a good idea.
Now, this monorail, in my view, would start somewhere down near Haig Park, Girrahween Street, would proceed down the centre of Northbourne Avenue towards Civic before hanging a left on Cooyong Street.
It would then continue all the way around to the National Convention Centre before hanging a left on Constitution Avenue. From here it would zip off toweards Russell Offices before going across Kings Avenue Bridge.
Once across the lake it would follow King edward terrace before winding back onto Commonwealth Avenue and back across the lake hanging a right on London Cct.
Once it reached london Cct it would then wind its way all around until hitting University Avenue before going right on Marcus Clark St and then proceeding back towards its starting point.
Okay, it will never happen, and it probably needs a tad more planning, but it would be pretty cool.
Of course, we could just have light rail.
