Rural liquor store ram raided

Two thieves have used a what-seems-to-be-stolen ute as a tool to smash the entrance of a Koo Wee Rup liquor store, in Melbourne’s southeast in the early hours of the Friday morning. Two masked-men stole cigarette lighters and two tills full of cash; albeit failed to break into a cigarette cabinet using their bare hands. The men entered with no tools when the ram raid occurred. The car used in the crime; which can easily be distinct, having black and white number plates, is similar to that of a Ford Ranger with a front bull bar, snorkel and steel tray at the back.   ...read more

"There needs to be a full assessment, an audit, to understand driver behavior and to see whether we c  ...read more

Looking back at Melbourne's City Loop construction

With the City Loop going through a major upgrade, we thought it might be interesting to take a look back at how it all began 46 years ago. It was 1971 in Melbourne, the cost of a loaf of bread was 24 cents, the cassette tape was the latest and greatest in technology and the Victorian Government began works on what they called the ‘Melbourne Underground Rail Loop.’ The population of the city had risen to two and half million people about half of what it is today and the infrastructure was hard-pressed to keep up. So the arduous task of tunnelling under the famo  ...read more

Military level protection

Military level protection

Historic buildings and sites in Australia are an important part of our heritage, and many of them continue to be used for modern purposes. Camp Road Military Base commonly known as the Broadmeadows Maygar Barracks is a good example of how a century old military base still has significance today. The base was used for the first time in 1914 at the onset of the Great War after having been purchased by the Department of Defence. Since then, it has served as a hunting club and even a hostel in the sixties. Despite its age, the Broadmeadows barracks is still an important milita  ...read more
