You get it when you try to exit a railway station and your card has not been touched on

Myki collection bin outside the Skybus stop at Southern Cross Station

Supposedly 'they' will give them to charity - no mention as to which one, and what they will do with them

New tram stop signage, directing passengers to the nearest Myki retailer

Unfortunately it only tells you the general direction - one has to hope that the Myki retailer has some sort of signage out the front to alert you

Myki gates locked open at Southern Cross

Presumably opened due to the lack of barrier staff to monitor them

Installing the new four gate wide array at the Collins Street entry to Southern Cross

Apparently existing gate array cannot have additional lanes added to them, because of the way the end pieces are setup. Instead you add an entirely new array alongside.

Additional bank of Myki gates being installed at the Collins Street entry to Southern Cross Station

They replaced the old Metcard gate array with a Myki set a few months ago - so why didn't they just install one massive array to start with?

'Gunnebo Entrance Control' badge on a set of Myki gates

Don't blame Gunnebo for the piss-poor performance of the new gates - the company has supplied equipment to cities around the world who have no trouble at all - blame Kamco and their crappy software and smartcard readers that are connected to them.

Metcard gates blocked while Myki cable trunking works take place behind

Meanwhile it is the middle of peak hour and everyone wants to get home - can't they plan their work better to avoid disruptions like this?

Installing more cable trunking at Flinders Street Station

I'm guessing the new barrier array will be away from the arches, and run on an angle
