Connex ‘Safe Zone’

Only a few days ago Connex Melbourne introduced their ‘Safe Zone’ at all of their premium stations across Melbourne, as Melbournians have seen illistrated by ‘that ad’ on FTA in Melbourne. Personally I think the safe zone concept is good, although I can’t see a point in it, whats a lit area going to do for you? Can you? But if they improve it further it may be ‘safer’ but as it stands I don’t like it :( A waste of money which could be spent on better things

But anyhow, I’ll introduce myself – I’m Michael :)

    In other cities where I’ve seen this concept being used, the “safe zone” is a well lighted area with an emergency phone (or panic button) that happens to be located exactly at the point of the platform that will be nearest to the conductor (or the on-board security guard) when a train stops. This means that, if anyone were to attack you, this is a place for where it’s easier to get help from someone.

    I haven’t seen the Connex ad, but I guess the idea is the same. If so, it does make sense, especially in the more isolated stations.
