THE WARRINGAH EXPRESSWAY . . .
During my childhood North Sydney was a suburb undergoing major change. The greatest cause of change during this time was the construction of the Warringah Expressway. It changed the residential character of the district forever, literally ripping my suburb in half. Buildings of significance, houses and small businesses were crushed under the metal tread of bulldozers. Nothing was spared if it lay in the pathway of the approaching expressway. While all this destruction was taking place, large office blocks and housing apartments began appearing in the suburb.
