I don't remember mentioning *peace and quite*. I mentioned mess and I stand by that. there is a difference between the two.

Edit: I quite liked the vibe of the place, I just don't like the mess.

The HSW are great. There are a few little teething problems, but they will mostly get fixed.

I did drive from my place in the city over the Story Bridge last night about 7pm. And I have to say that the traffic situation leading to the Ivory Street tunnel was not great. I think a lot of it was uber's and taxi's heading to HSW. I don't know if it was a one off, or if it's always like that, it was a Saturday night I guess. It would help if they made that end of Adelaide St a clearway 24/7 instead of allowing a couple of cars to park there and reduce it to 1 lane.

Or maybe if a few people got out nearby and took the short walk to the wharves instead of having every vehicle trying to drive down there.

Might help if the Uber and Cab designated drop off/pick up points where at the top of the cliff along Bowen Terrace, and not down the bottom on boundary st.

Aussie unfortunately it's like that every Saturday night. It's great to see HSW always packed on weekends but it's a nightmare getting in and out of there at the moment.

I just grab a 199 to Brunswick Street (either the stop approaching Malt Street or Kent Street near the Brunswick Hotel, depending where are the Wharves I'm going) and just walk down to the lifts. Getting an Uber there would be a nightmare.
