According to The Age, the picket is the latest development in a dispute over the short-fare queue that lets drivers avoid the holding area.
Taxi drivers are planning a second protest at 6pm this evening, according to The Age.
The protest, which began at 8am this morning, follows a partial blockage of cabs at the airport in May this year, The Age reported.
There’s more here.
Here’s a video from the May protest, via Sky News.
