With your permission Aussie Bhoy, a stitch-up job.....



Never noticed before but the PA actually isn't a bad looking hospital since it was re-built.

This such a great angle of the city. You have Brissy Square dominating one side, and the beautiful cluster of Riparian, CP1, Waterfront Place, Aurora, Comalco, etc, on the other.

^^Me too. And CP1 has it's BMU out - it still looks so weird everytime I see it. Looking straight down a busy freeway towards a city skyline is always a really effective shot IMO, although it's a shame the sun wasn't in the right place to give more contrast to the CBD skyline there.

PA Hospital looks as if it's just going to sound its horn & start steaming away at any minute - are those things on top meant to look like ships funnels?

All those chimneys are where they burn all biohazards, like arm that are amputated and placentas etc.. And some times staff fall in by accident and they get burnt up as well. Its all a conspiracy, apparantly thats where you go if you are caught for tax evasion.

I thought that about the PA too! Maybe Beattie had it decked out like the Titanic to reflect the current state of the public health system?! :)

^^lol. You know there's nothing like a health crisis to familiarise the public with the state's public hospitals. I don't know how many times I saw shots of the facade of Princess Alexandra on the news when it was in the spotlight. Same with Bundaberg, Caboolture & Townsville when they had their turn. Who will be next?...

Grantus - we have a whole thread about Building Maintenance Units located here. Lots of pics, including a closer shot of CP1's BMU (by nerazzurri):

How awesome is it going to be when Vision is built, I can't wait for construction to start on that baby. Great add-in Locke.

That picture also shows where the Southern end of the new North-South Bypass Tunnel will start.
