I saw an article about the tanbark at the new tram stop on Whiteman St in this month’s edition titled “Where’s the green space?”

I was wondering if you could follow it up with my photos and information.

I wish to express my view of disappointment with part of the re-development of the Whiteman St tram stop. I was also wondering if you had information on whether the tanbark was temporary or permanent, as the article doesn’t mention it?

The tanbark has already displaced in one section due to rain, leaving clumpy dirt. There is also rubbish scattered along the tanbark including numerous alcohol bottles and a broken bottle.  This has been there for weeks.

There are now unsightly weeds growing along the edges of the tanbark.

Also because of the recent upgrades a new area of road has major drainage issues during normal levels of rainfall.

I have advised Yarra Trams and the council about all of this but am yet to see any action taken.

I’m attaching a compilation of photos, which show the issues I’ve mentioned.

I am happy to provide you with better quality original photos or take some more photos if needed.

Thanks - Trevor
