So has anyone seen the new solar lights in action yet? Are they actually useful?

Kedron Brook Bikeway to the sea conditions report

Ooooh... The solar light was on next to Montrose street this morning.

I was very impressed with the amount of light it was putting out at 5am. If they all work that well then they will be a good thing :)

Be aware that there will be a diversion around the Gympie Road area from Wednesday to Saturday.

Read about it here.

From Wednesday 27 July to the evening of Saturday 30 July, 2011 Kedron Brook will be closed to pedestrians and cyclists at Gympie Road. The temporary closure will allow the safe demolition of the existing Gympie Road Bridge to take place. This can only be undertaken after the traffic realignment of Gympie Road. The removal of the bridge allows for construction of the new Northern Busway Bridge and the Airport Link off-ramp.
As part of this temporary closure alternate pedestrian and cycling access will be available. Signage will be in place to direct pedestrians and cyclists.

It is with pleasure that I can report that all the solar lights are now operational. They work OK which will now make the brook just that little bit less dark and eerie.

Having said that they are still pretty lame when you compare it to the cost and effort that goes into lighting most roads out there. The lighting is generally only at some of the major junctions in the heaviest trafficked parts. Once you pass Webster road heading towards Shand St there are no lights, and that is an area that gets the least help from the surroundings unlike some of the other areas that have quite good lighting a few nights a week when the sports clubs are operating.

Crikeys it was cold along the KBB yesterday morning.
Especially Near South Pine Rd, where there was a fog.
Nice if you are prepared for it. :wink:

I went through there the other day and it was a dog's breakfast. The "signage" was pathetic. Does anyone know if this has been cleared up now?

:oops: I got my dates mixed up. I thought you meant Friday just gone. Anyway, I'll be avoiding that area until it's sorted out.

Not KBB but the Wetlands....keep an eye out for cattle. A nice looking ~18mo was on the path this arvo. about half way in but closer to the north end. When it saw me, it turned and bolted along the path away from me, then nearly slipped over when executing a sharp turn into the bush. First time I've seen cattle in there.

Hmmmm...might give them a call. It was very healthy looking so might be a recent escapee. Doubt there's a lot of fresh water currently. Don't know how they'll find it though.

edit: Just phoned to let em know. Tony Jensen is the relevant guy if anyone else sights them/it.

I can't help but feel sorry for the cow in question. All she knows is standing in a paddock and having plenty to eat and drink and generally being happy (by cow standards). I can't imagine being on the loose is much fun for her, especially if she's stuck somewhere. :(

Tony was very appreciative and said Nudgee College have a herd on pasture beside the wetlands, and the fence must be compromised, and he'd get a group down there pronto.

I said "that's okow Tony. Angus and I will be maintaining a lowline through there tomorrow on our bikes wearing our long cycling guernseys so we aren't friesian. Though I won't be wearing no bra man."
