Construction, reaction, rotation

Brisbane's apartment construction cycle is clearly on its last legs now, with commencements falling away sharply.

This we're now moving into a different phase, with a number of major infrastructure projects and transport upgrades getting underway.

And, yes, that includes the odd new Bunnings.
