New Rules at St Kilda Junction
While it was not designed for pedestrians to walk along the narrow raised concrete area and cross over into St Kilda Road, who could blame them when the alternative is to walk back, use the underpass and walk back along St Kilda Road. It would take four times as long at least to get to the west side of St Kilda Road and god knows how long to get to the eastern side.
St Kilda Junction is an abortion for pedestrians, hence few do what they are supposed to. With the Commonwealth Games starting soon, someone has decided that pedestrains at St Kilda Junction need to be controlled. Do they really think putting up a couple of signs is going to make a difference? I am fairly law abiding, but here is no way I would take any notice of these ridiculous signs.
Good luck to whoever is going to try and enforce this. You weren't the idiot who designed St Kilda Junction or put up the stupid signs. As usual, click the pic for a proper view.
