Rather than walk the length of this barrier and then about an equal distance back to the tram stop, am I really expected to back track and use a convoluted pedestrian subway? Would the person who ordered the signs do so? Would the person who decided on the placement of the signs do so? I very much doubt it. Not a single person in the world who was familiar with the tram stop would do so.
What time would it take to walk to the tram stop? Twenty seconds from where I am standing, across the road from a huge office block. Am I really expected to walk back along the path on the far right, wait for the long cycle traffic lights to cross the road, go down the steps or ramp under the road and then up again to get to the tram stop? This would take about three to four minutes at least. I assume this is the work of Yarra Trams and I may well make a proper complaint about such puerile nonsense. Clearly our tram company is heavily into self protection mode, as there actually aren't proper paths from where I am, yet the way is trodden by hundreds ever day. This really is a Vic Roads issue from when St Kilda Junction was built.
This Australian native hangs down from St Kilda Junction to Queensway. It is to the side but it is low enough to be struck by a truck. It quite amuses me as I pass by. No doubt at the moment, its care has not been specified on Vic Road's contractor's list. It is going to keep growing but let it be, I say.
Holy Sheet! After many years of trading, Holy Sheet in Acland Street has closed down.
