    Cruise Ships - Street warning signs

    The Port of Melbourne Corporation (PoMC) is preparing for the 2014/2015 Cruise season at Station Pier starting in late September. One of their issues is the effectiveness of the street signs placed at the entrances to Beach Street and Waterfront Place warning of heavy congestion on turnaround days and double sailings. As BCNA sought these warning notices some years ago we are asked whether community members see these as being helpful or, as some have reported, unhelpful as they could be confusing or a distraction for drivers.

    PoMC would like to do away with the signs and BCNA is asking what the opinions of the local community are. Please advise over the next 7 days either continue or OK to remove. We will pass on the responses to PoMC.
