Letters - November 2019 Image

Docklands rainbow

I’ve been meaning to write, to thank you for your newspaper. We are new to area and value your publication. 

If you’d like to include either of the photos please feel free. They were taken Saturday, October 26 on a very Melbourne day!

Melissa

Thank you

Thanks for the article in this month’s Docklands News regarding hoon type activity in Lorimer St.

Most Friday and Saturday nights it is constant from around 9.30 onwards until Pizza Societe closes around midnight. We have stopped patronising Pizza Societe because of the hoon activity.

If it rains or if another event is on we get some respite, but we just pray for rain on Friday and Saturday night, then the cars don’t turn up.

 I have seen burn outs, racing and even cars coming the wrong way down a two way road into oncoming traffic.  A few weeks ago, motor bikes were also involved, about 50 of them! The noise level needs to be dealt with.

 Thanks again for keeping it in the news.

 Regards, Lori Fellows

Sick to death

As a Docklands resident and rate payer, I am sick of people not obeying signs and rules of the area.  

Today, again, I was almost run over by bikes even though a sign clearly stated no bikes. There are ANZ employees that continue to smoke in non-smoking areas and leave a massive amount of butts on a daily basis that end up in the waterways.  

People skateboarding directly under signs that say “no skateboarding.”  If a council worker was to walk Docklands for one day and fine everyone doing the wrong thing rate payers wouldn’t have to pay rates for a year.

When is the pedestrian going to have any power? Is the council waiting until someone is seriously hurt? Why is Docklands littered with cigarette butts?  

There is a clean-up day, but it should be every day. Docklands is a beautiful place to live but would be better if bikes stayed in bike lanes and people obeyed signs put there for everyone.
