This was mentioned a few years ago on this forum somewhere, but I don't think the tenants were mentioned. Unless they have moved in since that post.
"Dolphin Discovery Centre – Bunbury, Western Australia: The large complex south of Perth opened in 1995...he centre’s role as an educator, tourist operator and scientific researcher, along with its “unique design” and approach to tourism granted it a place on the heritage list.
This makes me feel old.

Nice video! That one really puts the scale of it into perspective.

A few points on that video:
  • this project is gargantuan
  • I hope that's not actually the colour scheme for the bridge sections
  • where's the Tonsley line extension? I couldn't spot it

The Tonsley line section is a separate project that needs funding.

In other news, who wants to buy the South Road tram bridge?

The video was posted in April 2016, the Tonsley Line extension was funded in May 2016.

The Tonsley line extension is already funded by the Feds.

Ah, didn't look at the timestamp - that makes sense. Assumed it was new as only now posted here (and we don't miss much).

It's pretty much 12-14 lanes the whole way (inc. service roads). Surprised the city bound lane config is only 3 lanes given that the Southern Expressway has 4 city bound lanes from Reynella onwards - could be a choke point.

It is only 3 lanes heading south after it breaks off from the marion road exit. It only grows back to 4 lanes for the intersection, which won't be needed if it's free flowing.

Great videos Norman, well done.
Ok so what's the likelihood they will announce and fund any future stage/s before these projects finish in 2 years? It would be great to keep the momentum going and I hope it's not another 10 -20 year saga/wait, as these were to begin.
Also surely the Pym St intersection/lights have to be removed/closed to have a clear run to Regency Rd. This would be the next over/under pass that could/should start next ie 2018/2019. It would then just leave say Torrensville to Tonsley (T3?) to finish it off. So maybe 20km and $5 billion.
