Melbourne has several locations called Junctions, but if you are to the south of the city, there really is only one junction, St Kilda Junction. Re-constructed in the 1960s, it is big and it is ugly. Five tram routes pass through it and eight roads meet. While some thought was given to pedestrians with dedicated tunnels and walkways, generally it is quite an unfriendly pedestrian area. You try getting from one corner to another and it can take forever.
Some beautification efforts had been made with plantings, but much of the plantings were native shrubs which are very inappropriate for such a location. They looked scrubby and poorly maintained. Someone at Vic Roads has finally decided to spruce things up a bit and I rather like what they have done. I snapped this from inside a tram.
