Warning about accident

I would like to bring your attention to the problem we have at the Crown taxi super rank at the Clarendon St/Normanby Rd intersection (pictured).

On Friday and Saturday nights the taxis are blocking the road, continually honking horns, blocking the trams to try and get into the queue. The honking horns and tram bells ringing are quite annoying when trying to sleep.

We’ve seen police drive by, stop, turn on sirens to say move on but then they drive off and the problem continues.

I’ve contacted council and it says that there is nothing it can do about it. Not sure who I should contact to try and get this problem fixed before an accident happens.

Any advice on who to contact next would be great.

John

Thanks for the edition

Thanks Sean, it’s another insightful edition!

Glad things are looking up for the Guild but geez, I wish the City of Melbourne would get their act together when it comes to Southbank.

Keep up the good work.

Jobs in jeopardy

The City of Port Phillip’s decision to close and/or narrow a number of streets around Montague Community Park and the Ferrars Street School will threaten the viability of local businesses.

Montague area is home to many small businesses. For example, Surveyors Place, close to the school is home to 25 businesses employing up to 400 people. These businesses rely on parking for clients, deliveries and couriers.

SouthPort Urban Responsible Renewal (SPURR), an umbrella group of 48 local organisations, urges the incoming council to revisit these road closures.

A compromise solution, already developed with council, should be adopted.

Rowan Groves
Convenor, SPURR
