Muggers’ paradise

WHILE jogging in Butler the other day, I ran through the car park of the new train station and marvelled at its striking new design.

But as I ran south on the footpath between Connolly Drive and the railway line, which is bordered by a cyclone-mesh fence beside the railway reserve and a high brick wall on the Connolly Drive side of the path, I wondered who in their right mind would have planned such a dangerous route, let alone one leaving a train station.

The local muggers must be rubbing their hands in anticipation of the new train station’s opening, as there are numerous ambush points and nowhere to escape.
