Repeat performance

In July last year, workers contracted by Places Victoria put up hoarding around the wharves near Central Pier, before the organisation started the process of rectifying the aging wharves.

The hoarding was erected, painted black and signs were posted to advertise Central Pier tenants who had been relatively hidden by the wall.

Last month, six months after it was initially put up, the hoarding was pulled down and then moved a just a few metres forward.

It was once again erected, was repainted and signs posted once again.

Like us, you might be wondering why the hoarding wasn’t put in the right spot in the first place? Why waste time and money on putting it in one spot, only to move it a few metres forward a short while later?

Docklands News understands that the part of Harbour Esplanade where the hoarding has now been placed actually falls under the City of Melbourne’s jurisdiction.

Places Victoria had wanted to put the hoarding there originally, but it took all this time to get permission to put it where it currently stands.
