Simon Corbell has released the happy news that plans for the marvel of the age, the Time Travel busways will be momentarily on public display!

the display would be open from 4pm to 8pm on Thursday 6 April at the Belconnen Community Centre, Swanson Court, (opposite the Bus Interchange) in the Belconnen Town Centre.

Many of you have scoffed at Simon’s Brunel-like vision, and to you i say, behold the wonder of the plans!

Maybe the busaway will end up here (http://www.hoax-slayer.com/water-bridge.html) along with one of the greatest (apparently) engineering feats of all time – the Water Bridge that formed part of the reunification project bring East and West Germany together again.

Maybe that what the busaway is set to do?

time is an illusion.. lunch time doubley so….

Hey Johnboy,

I seem to remember that one of Brunel’s greatest feats was a white elephant ship that ended up laying cable across the Atlantic Ocean. Just like Corbell’s been “laying cable” all over us.

To maintain the recurrent theme of this thread … it could be time for Corbell to throw in the towel.

speaking of busways, i wonder if the flyover of the GDE over Belconnen way is going to be wide enough to accomodate the busway as well.

As to the whereabouts of the plans, someone’s gonna have to consult the small white mice or the dolphins (or was it whales) to locate them.

Oh come on SSSanta, busway, lying down in front of bulldozers in your pyjamas, reading poetry ???

You’ve gotta get out more buddy!

The fish is babel…

Great distractions – busaway, another new garden and perhaps even a prison. It’s just a pity that joe citizen isn’t really taking any notice of the issue of finding the ‘readies’ to pay for these lovely projects…but apparently things are bubbling along just nicely and we only have to worry about picking up the paycheck at the end of the fortnight.

Mael – you’re onto something with the line ‘the Public Service, boring the crap out of intelligent people since it was created in 19whatever…’maybe a t-shirt?

What fish are you talking about Mael? or have the ‘shrooms struck again…

The mayor and his sad mate will have to do more than import ferals from south-west Sydney to fund this hippie pipe dream.

I just want one of those fish.

Time to get on your dressing gowns and lay down in front of the bulldozer.

I just hope Corbell doesn’t decide to read poetry at us.

Given that I’ve just switched to StarWars Galaxies, the instructions on how to find the recalcitrent time travel busway timetable seems rather pertinent…

OMG it’s Wednesday and I’ve already had 2 bottles of vino…

Lovin the Public Service, boring the crap out of intelligent people since it was created in 19whatever…

I have a feeling that our Sammy will be chomping at the bit to see these plans.

I can hardly wait to read the painstaking details of his excursion to the display on his blog, since he won’t come here anymore.

in a dis-used lavatory down there surely?

And utterly appropriate too considering we’re talking about a hyperspace bypass.

FYI, the plans will be in a locked filing cabinet in a windowless basement with no stairs … or lights … and a sign on the door saying “Beware of the Leopard”
