It was very late in the morning, my Garmin was showing temps in the mid 30's!

The the surface was very rough and uneven at the end close to Dutton Park....I was planning on an early morning loop ride on Friday so I'd appreciate the latest status of the condition.

I posted before that I think they've "finished". As nothing has been happening for over a week I reckon they really have!

pff, a week is nothing in council terms. They left kingsford smith drive torn up for months earlier in the year before doing anything about it.

+1. newly surfaced roads are wonderful, as long as there are no cars around to flick up stones
