MELBOURNE'S WEST

Westgate Bridge

I love living in the west but hate breathing the air. I love the urban landscape and the shapes and colours, but hate the hum of traffic. I love the view from the bridge but always remember the tragedy that has befallen it. I love the excitement of a refinery evacuation alarm but feel terrified that one day it might not be a practice drill. I love the ships but hate the trucks. I love the piles of containers on ships and on land. I’m fascinated that wherever you go in the western suburbs, the Newport Power Station ‘s three red stripes can always be seen.
