Long day

I know its a beautiful evening, but it was a beautiful morning too a long time ago this morning when I took this photo. I love that there is a view at the end of the north south streets in Port Melbourne. In discussions about the Port Melbourne Waterfront Urban Design Framework, people often raised concerns about traffic movements around the Beach St/Waterfront Place area associated with cruise ship and TT Lines shipping. However, after giving the matter consideration, people generally agreed that the presence of shipping at Station Pier is what makes Port Melbourne Port Melbourne. Therefore, those traffic impacts need to be managed - rather than attempting to re-locate shipping [even if that were possible].
