I see that a development application has been lodged for a second McDonald’s Restaurant in Gungahlin.
This second franchise is planned for O’Hanlon Place, Nicholls, opposite (or perhaps adjacent to) the Caltex Service Station there.
So the Golden Arches will basically be the first thing people will see as they enter Canberra along the Barton Highway – especially at night as they will be illuminated of course.
I wonder what the owners of the current eateries at Gold Creek – such as the George Harcourt Inn and Adore Tea House and Cafe Injoy – think about this? Could be good for Gold Creek as a destination for visitors, or not….
There was a winery mooted for this location (or very close to it) at one stage a few years ago – with vines to be planted there on the corner of Curran Drive and O’Hanlon Place. A shame that didn’t get up!
