The Watsonia Bugle has finally taken a meaningful step towards getting the giant dim sim built on Watsonia Road, after we nominated ourselves to join new Town Square reference group. Nominations to join the advisory group are open until Friday 5 March, and we feel we put together a fairly compelling application.

While mystery still surrounds the specific plans for the $5.5 million redevelopment and obvious North East Link deal sweetener, we’ve decided now is the perfect time to formalise our dream of immortalising Watsonia’s greatest export: the Noodle Station dim sim. Despite first floating the bold concept back in November 2017, it seems nobody thinks we’re serious about installing the significant landmark… but that’s all about to change.

What’s next? I guess we’ll just wait by the phone until after Friday 5 March when the calls start flooding in and we can show the council our concept drawings for what will become the ultimate town square, and the envy of every suburb in Melbourne.

More to come.
