Four years ago I came to Melbourne 3 times in about 5 weeks (twice for weddings and once for work) and I remember watching with interest the construction of the Melbourne Ferris Wheel. (The skybus from the airport goes straight past the wheel). It was a pivotal couple of weeks in construction, and I saw most of the wheel being put in place. So I was a bit surprised on Sunday to see that the wheel was being taken *down*. Apparently it has been plagued with design faults, and there is a redesign in progress. What a terrible waste of money!
