Conflicting speeds

One particular 40km/h speed limit sign, recently erected on South Wharf Drive, had become the source of confusion among locals living at Yarra’s Edge.

While one side of the road out the front of Forge Apartments had the newly erected 40km/h sign, the other side of the road has a “shared zone” sign warning motorists to travel 30km slower!

Local resident Herb Greenwood, who spotted the dilemma, told Docklands News that he raised the bungle with the City of Melbourne, only to receive a reply via text message informing him that his case had already been closed …

“This issue meets our acceptable standards, so we won’t do any work” the message from council read. “We closed your case.”

However, in an extraordinary and quick change in standards, the 40km/h sign out the front of the apartment building had disappeared the very next day!

While we’re sure the issue wouldn’t have caused major safety issues for locals in Yarra’s Edge, Docklands News recommends driving with care along South Wharf Drive at all times … whatever the speed limit!
