Spot the error

Wouldn’t it have been terrific if Bourke St had have been extended into Docklands when the urban renewal was first contemplated back in the 1990s?

We would have had another transport connection with the city and trams could have extended through Docklands to the new Fishermans Bend.

Some Docklanders would like to see a tunnel dug because the benefits would be so strong.

So they were please to see a mistake in the map circulated to all residents by the City of Melbourne and Places Victoria in July as a summary of their Docklands Community and Place Plan.

The map (pictured) shows Bourke St running straight through Southern Cross Station.

Wishful thinking?  Freudian slip?  Or perhaps the graphic artist charged with the task just assumed because it was so obvious?
