Nightmare on Swanston Street: Design Madness – What not to do..

Melbourne’s Swanston Street’s recent  26 Million dollar make over is a major safety hazzard and a classic case of poor design. It’s hard to believe they got a design ward for the streetscape. Just goes to show you can get an award for anything.

Tram Stops Blocking Emergency Access.

Starting with the Tram ‘Super Stops’ come bicycle ramp.  Whoever came up with the design should be sacked or sent into academia.  It is a classic ‘What not to do” in urban design.  Placing the stops in parallel has placed the precinct at risk.  If trams are on each side of the road there is no way an emergency vehicle can get access or pass the trams without having to crash over the footpaths and ramps.  If they remained diagonally staggered fire trucks, ambulances and police could weave through. In an emergency, where every second counts, just hope you’re nowhere near Town Hall.

Call a Litigation Lawyer

The Tram stops are an accident waiting to happen.  The raised profile does not fit.  Z Class tram’s front entrance is a serious safety hazard with passengers running the risk of having their foot trapped between the tram and the platform There is no warning. You alight from the tram and you fall into a hole if you’re not careful. Should you be unfortunate to be a victim of bad design call a lawyer.  The Council and designer would most certainly be liable. Yarra Trams must be worried as they also could be held to be liable for any accident.

Street lights of shame. 

Swanston Street has a new set of ‘Stainless Steel’ Street lights. The design, nominated for an award, is totally useless in Summer.  They are positioned and so tall that they are hidden in the tress foliage and cast little light on the street.  The designer thought of form before function.

Seats of steel

Swanston Street also has new street furniture. The new seats are made from Stainless steel and cost a pretty penny.  No expenses spared for Bamboo Rob Adams design team folly.  Being polished Stainless steel they will show up every scratch and rub as time goes by.  What’s worse, in the midst of a hot summer day, in the full sun they are scalding.  Sit down at your own risk  As Melbournians will tell you Melbourne get hot in Summer with temperatures in the mid 30’s to 40s. Even hotter in the full sun. You cold toast a bun on these heat sinks.

How much more must we spend on Swanston Street before they realize that it is not working? Will we have to wait until Rob Adams retires and hope that his predecessor will not following in his golden footsteps. King Ludwig he is not.  The sooner Professor Adams retires into academia the better.

x/y Pure Proportional Representation – minus the flaws

Analysis and recounting of the City of Melbourne “C9” Council elections produces a different result.

If we remove all the distortions that arise though the segmentation, wrong calculation of the surplus transfer value and the method of calculating the quota that was introduced last century back in the times of the typewriter when computer technology was not readily available we would have a true proportionality election. If we divided the number of votes by the number of vacancies (x/y) and allocated each vote a value of one and proportioned out the value of the vote with one single transaction per candidate, no segmentation the results of the election would have been

Greens candidate, Rohan Leppert would have been excluded.

The system that is currently in place is semi proportional at best and as a result of the method of calculating the surplus transfer value (based on the number of ballot papers as opposed to the value of the vote) the value of some votes increase at the a expense of others. It distorts the proportionality of the vote and does not accurately reflect the voters intentions.

The Greens received 15.62% of the primary vote which in pure proportional terms equates to 1.41 quotas.

After the distribution of preferences the Greens second candidate fails to reach quota and is excluded from the count.

If Victoria is to maintain public confidence in the electoral system the results of the election MUST be accurate and MUST reflect the intentions of the electorate. It must be proportional to the vote. Each vote must equal one value.

The flawed and outdated system of counting the vote was designed to facilitate a manual count, back in the days before calculators or computers. With the aid of computer technology and a more accurate method of counting the vote there is no justification to maintain the existing electoral systems.

If we calculated dividends or interest paid on financial transactions the way we calculate the vote our financial system would collapse over night.
