Quote from: Buzz Killington on September 04, 2012, 10:33:12 PMThought we had this topic but couldn't find it.Anyhow, Riot ACT had an interesting thread today, somewhat similar to our new section, which was on 'cool urban relics' - one mentioned the Arnott St (Hume) Railway Bridge. I had a look on Google Streetview and sure enough, there it was. But there's something nearby that maybe one of the older members can help with. On Long Gully Road, there is a street that passes underneath it about halfway down. It's only a short section going by Google Maps, but I'm interested in what it is - I seem to recall it being part of the 'old' Long Gully Road but I'm just not sure.Can anyone shed some light?

So I ventured out there, while in have no idea when this road was closed. But surprisingly the road markings are clearer then some operational roads.

Quote from: ACTbusspotter on March 30, 2014, 11:01:28 AMThat one has always puzzled me too. Water Processing Centre?Will have to dig out some old maps to see if there are any clues.
