An overview of Belconnen Community Centre Bus Station. The blue wall looks like unfinished panel work, but it is infact a decorative wall. Further up it turns Navy Blue and has coloured sketchings of insects

I don't agree simply because when a bus is in the red lane traffic from Benjamin way will be held by the lights. Once the lights change to allow cars to turn into this road the bus should be out of the way, thus allowing for cars to cross into the trun lane into the carpark.

Urk at the blue wall! I'll bet it will have some colour in a few weeks time, unless it is some special type of layering or guards to stop graffiti!

I've heard about the issues with graffiti in Canberra, Wagga seems to have the same issue.

There is no real issue of graffiti in Canberra, compared to other cities our graffitists are tame. The blue wall is just that, a blue wall. It has lines and designs engraved into it, I actually think it looks quite nice (It is a little bright though) and I could not see any sign that it was going to change from that blue colour. Alot better than plain concrete or everyone's favourite, pebble-crete. Further up the wall turns Navy, and has painted graphics of insects which is apparently lit up.
