Indeed. Surely a candidate for the Shitadelaide FB/Instagram page :?

Haha I actually tried them! They haven’t posted it although I have had some successes in the past, which I’m VERY proud of!

I believe that bench is there as a requirement, a place for the elderly folks to rest while they hike up and down the long ramps to get between the ground and platform levels. :lol:

They didn't have to face it to the wall, as though you're there to think about how naughty you've been :lol:

I think some DPTI planners need to sit on it.

Is the "new advertising board" for advertising, or driver information? It looks the same shape as the ones on the North-South Motorway and Port Wakefield Road with travel times to likely destinations.

It's for advertising. It looks exactly like the one at Anzac Highway at Keswick. Traffic information signs usually feature warning lights on the sides of the LED panel if they are at that size, or they come in a smaller size found in different locations around Adelaide.

Great pictures Norman. Who is responsible for watering the lawn?
I only hope it still looks this good this time next year.

Pretty sure they put those purple pipe irrigation grids under every bit of green on the upgrade
