    Not much to describe really, i could just see different colours, changing every few seconds at the top of the stand coming from the inside somewhere from what i could gather.
    I'm going by around 5am so they might be better during the night idk.

    Final piece in the puzzle at Parramatta Town Square has finally been approved for construction.
    PTS 6 and 8 will be the largest commercial/office building in Sydney. Height of the taller tower is 230 metres, about 55 metres taller than the current Meriton Tower.
    It's the middle and right hand towers in the below pic.... The left hand tower (PTS 4) is currently under construction.

    Yes.
    Right adjacent to the station. Takes up a huge area that you and I would have just known as the old Church st and also where the Parramatta Library was when we were kids.
    When you are next down this way, you won't recognize it, but it's still a huge construction site and will be for about three years. By then, the new light rail will be in as well.
    Amazing transformation of Parramatta currently underway. And, there is so much more to come.

    It also looks like the pool protesters have been given their wish.
