All of the other bits and bobs I write about.
With the 2013 Victorian and Federal budgets having been released in the past week, the spotlight is on funding major infrastructure projects across Australia. So how does the government pay for the big infrastructure projects we need to avoid choking on our own growth? And how did we do it in the old days?
It seems that every second month the Victoria Police decide to hold a jaywalking ‘blitz’ in the Melbourne CBD – in the 2011-12 financial year they issued 5690 fines to pedestrians. So what actual offence do the infringement notices have written on them?
Geelong is a city that was built on manufacturing, and the Ford factory has been a large part of it since it commenced operations in 1925. But what happens when one of those factories closes?
When people in Melbourne think of IMAX theatres, the massive screen at the Melbourne Museum in Carlton should come to mind. I can still remember my first visit when I was about 10 years old: making my way down the longest escalator I had ever seen, to see a screen so big it filled my entire field of view. But what other other other so-called ‘IMAX’ theatres in Melbourne?
From the time I spend walking around the Melbourne CBD to and from work, it seems that the latest fad for motorists is queuing through intersections.
