More new speed humps

To limit the speed of traffic on Childers St (largely comprised of 'rat runners' taking a shortcut through the Lloyd St industrial park) the City of Melbourne has again replaced the speed humps. Originally there were seven bitumen ones. These were then replaced with smaller yellow plastic squares. They've now reverted to bitumen ones, although with a different profile.

These end before Altona Street and so the experience appears to be that cars will rapidly accelerate towards the dog-leg past the train station. If you are a frequent train user, be careful. No word from City of Melbourne regarding any more speed humps further up Childers Street - although they did have a traffic counter there a few months ago.
