Balcatta side entry to the Water Corporation compound

Balcatta side entry to the Water Corporation compound is overgrown and closed off. The main entry is now on the northern side, with easier access from the Reid Highway, which is in turn fed by the Mitchell Freeway and the great expansion suburbs to the north where all the workers now live. It is a representation of the changing class composition of Balcatta and the intra-suburban migration of class formations.
