Just before the Games, the powers-that-be replaced rubbish bins at the city loop underground stations plus Flinders Street, Richmond and North Melbourne, with big plastic transparent things. For security, y’know. So you can see any suspicious packages that get dropped in, and panic appropriately.
But at nearby South Yarra station, which is probably busier than North Melbourne, they still have the old insecure metal bins. And the shiny new
Spencer Street Southern Cross Station has got metal bins too.
Are the South Yarra and Spencer Street people less of a target than those at North Melbourne? Or more expendable? I dunno.
