Ghostly post boxes

Australia Post is very proud of its facilities – even those that it has removed from the Docklands community.

Docklands used to have yellow and red postage boxes in front of the AFL building in Harbour Esplanade (pictured below).  These boxes were removed earlier this year, with Australia Post citing safety concerns.

However, it has no intention of reinstating the service despite the roadworks now being completed.

Perhaps it should also remove this proud photo it has on its website as a downloadable resource for media.

It can be found at http://auspost.com.au/about-us/images-and-news-reel.html under the title “Our facilities”.

Docklands business would dearly love to have the postage boxes back so they could be our facilities too.

Speaking candidly to Docklands News last month, local business owner Susan Rogan made us blush with the colourful language she used to describe the decision not to reinstate the boxes.

An Australia Post spokesperson said: “As advised in February, the Harbour Esplanade street posting boxes were removed due to construction works and safety concerns for our customers and staff accessing the boxes.”

“To continue to maintain services to the area, we installed an additional Express Post box at the Docklands Post Office as well as a two street posting boxes at the corner of Docklands Drive and Wharf Street.”

“We believe that customers are well serviced with these additional street posting boxes and at this stage we are not planning to install more boxes at Harbour Esplanade.”
