The ‘chilling and sad’ letter the Lord Mayor received after the Bourke Street attack
Lord Mayor Robert Doyle has revealed he received a “chilling” letter from a young woman in the wake of the Bourke Street massacre.
It comes as the government and city council discuss further improvements to CBD security.
Councillor Doyle said the woman was working in the Bourke Street mall on January 20 when six people were killed and at least 30 others injured as a car sped down the street.

“I got the most chilling and sad letter,” Cr Doyle explained.
“She wrote to me to say that ‘everyone is saying these bollards are ugly, but it’s the first time I can sit in the mall and not look over my shoulder’.
“I actually invited her in for a cup of tea at Town Hall just to see how she was coping.”
Councillor Doyle joined Neil Mitchell in studio on Thursday, with CBD security high on the agenda following the latest terror attack in New York.
