Warning Bayswater Station works - extreme care req'd

Postby matthecat » Tue Aug 01, 2017 9:29 am

Hi all,
This morning (about 5.30am )going up the temporary ramp came a cropper on the last "hairpin" going up.
I assume light rain & extreme cold had caused icing and lost front wheel. Even trying to walk up with cleats was difficult
Big thumbs up to the 2 guys who had stayed around & tried to warn me - I ignored them to my detriment.
Tomorrow is going to be cold again so maybe walking up is the way to go.
Anyone know who I should try & get hold of to see if they can add a treatment to provide more grip?
Stay safe.

You can call the PTA public switchboard and ask to speak to their cycling co-ordinator, Jim Krynen.

The project website also lists projects@pta.wa.gov.au, or call 13 62 13 as points of contact.

Have sent an email as I believe this provides an audit trail in case no action is taken and someone is hurt.
Originally there was a Cyclists Dismount sign (which I must admit I ignored) but this has since been removed.

Fast response from PTA - well done.
Hi Matthew,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The project team attended to the site this morning by sweeping the ramp and reapplying the non-slip surface.

If you have any other issues travelling crossing this ramp, or if you notice any other potential hazards, please don’t hesitate to contact me so that I can have the issue addressed as quickly as possible.

Kind regards,

Anthony | Project Communications Team

Yeah...wet ply wood boards are very slippery :/

Was out on the CX bike on Sunday. Decided to take the "Supercross style fly over" at speed and flick the bike sideways through one of the turns. Almost nailed a complete 360 on the bike without falling, but my bibshorts needed a good wash :oops:
