Driving in Canberra

You know what they say about driving in Canberra. Well, driving in Canberra is easy. With one exception.

Further to my off topic bitching in the previous post, Google and I have banded together to present to you:

GLENLOCH INTERCHANGE



This photo was taken before it was finished. You can guess where it all joins up though.

Anyone else got a photo of their most hated intersection? I'd love to see how bad they are!

It boggles the mind to look at that! (yikes)

And let's keep in mind you're meant to do this junction at 70 miles an hour. And if you go wrong, you end up in Wales and can't turn back 'til you cross the bridge...

It really is a pretty-looking intersection, though.

Mine's very deceptive:

That bit where Blackburn Road meets Railway Parade and continues to the right is possibly one of the worst intersections ever. More than once, I've sat there on a bus for HALF AN HOUR, just waiting to move. And yes, we all could have walked to the station in five minutes flat, but the drivers aren't allowed to let us off unless we're at a bus stop.
