$200,000 to help make Queanbeyan cab rank safe

By 21 June 2013 6

Looks rough

The recipients of the Taxi Security Scheme were announced today by Jason Clare, giving Australia a handy list of places you should probably avoid for the time being when trying to catch a cab at night.

Help is on the way however, local councils have been granted money to install CCTV, improved street lighting, and other features to hopefully deter people from being jerks at these locations.

None of Canberra’s cab ranks made the naughty list, however Crawford Street in Queanbeyan was listen as a recipient so if you ever need to catch a cab from the Q, know that improvements are on the way.

Interesting photo. That Decorator Centre is now the Queanbeyan Post Office. Oh, and I have never seen a taxi at the Queanbeyan taxi rank, which is a good two blocks south of the site pictured.

How much will it take to make Queanbeyan cabbies smell more palatable?

Perhaps they should consider installing a shower block at the rank!

Surely that’s only relevant to cannibals?

I looked at that picture and thought, where is that? It looks like the corner where the post office is, a good 2 blocks from the taxi rank.
I didn’t realise the taxt rank in Quangers was particuarly dangerous. I suppose at night it might be. During the day thouigh, nothing much happens there.

It would be cheaper to just put up a sign that says:

“This Taxi rank does not operate after 6pm Thursday thru Sunday. The nearest Queanbeyan Cab Rank operating at this time is located at Alinga Street,Civic.”

I’m willing to get one made, should only cost $199,999:95
