Careful what you wish for though, it seems they've commenced work by simply blocking off all paths in the area according to the BWA Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/BicyclingWA/photos/a.379547324560.155592.257517609560/10154145010199561/?type=3&permPage=1


Yep, had fun with this early this morning coming from the North and being greeted with a taped off ramp. I had to walk my bike through the sand and ride on the road to get to the other side of Hutton. These changes are all well and good, but some notice would have been nice and even with these improvements, this whole intersection will remain an obstacle course and a joke for cyclists!


hopefully theres no accidents there today. i too had to scoot across the sand and then ride along the bridge to re-join the path. hopefully its fixed by this evenings ride home.

Plenty of fresh spraypaint appeared yesterday on the Mitchell Fwy PSP around the Leederville bumpy bits (Britannia Rd to Loftus St). Another rider at work mentioned he saw the same up near Erindale Rd and Karrinyup Rd.

For the Erindale Rd section, wouldn't it make more sense to start the new PSP on the other side of the freeway, DoT are still showing this as completion date June 2018, rather than spend money now fixing a section of PSP which won't be there in 18 months? Then again if the new section of PSP doesn't include a grade crossing wonder how many cyclists will use the existing route?

AFAIK the designs for the new PSP use the existing traffic signals to cross Karrinyup Rd but that's no different to the current crossing and saves using Hertha Rd bridge
