In fact, here's a picture of the development at Collins West End. The pylons in the foreground are part of the first stage of construction. Soon the railway lines here will get the Fed Square treatment!

Nothing worse than getting to the stop as the bus is pulling away and the next one isn't for 30 minutes. There did use to be an hour between them during the middle of the day.

They're fucking beautiful! And have by far the most comfortable seats of any on the system.

This meter, believe it or not, is the bane of our existence. Some idiot decided that EVERYONE should start using them, except the systems of every single electricity distributor and probably retailer too, were in no way set up to accommodate them. So they're a fucking nightmare. We've got like 3 people working FULL TIME on the damn things just to keep them billing properly.

HATE HATE HATE. If I could have got away with some sort of ritual burning, I would have torched the thing.
