Re-branding obsolete signs

Connex’s name will be removed from trains and the system renamed ”Metro”. The massive Government rebranding exercise will cost $25 million.

Yes, and they’ll re-brand without thinking.

Have a look at this safety sign:
Metro re-branding 
(I’ve enlarged 2 parts of the sign).

The sign is there, for when a truck hits the rail bridge.

Metro have come along and re-branded the sign, but left the phone number as is.

The problem?  Melbourne has not had 5 digit phone numbers since 1995.  The Metro people have re-branded an out of date safety sign, instead of fixing it.
