Wet Weather Hazard on Arena Bridge Ramp

Wet Weather Hazard on Arena Bridge Ramp

Postby michaelp7757 » Mon Jan 14, 2013 10:40 am

Repair work was undertaken on the temporary ramp adjacent to the Arena late last week.

Metal strips have riveted over the joins in the boards - however they are not painted with the same anti-slip as the boards themselves.

The ramp was wet this morning - myself & a fellow cyclist both had front wheel slide outs on the corners.

I was on my MTB so managed to stay on - the other guy was on a road bike & wasn't so lucky.

Please take care here if it has been raining.

Yeah, that was nasty. They had a guy at the halfway point calling out cautions to cyclists coming through. Unfortunately his attention was at a small group coming over the bridge as I got there from the other side and lost my front wheel at the first bend! Managed to stay up, somehow. Scary.

Then the same thing happened at the Claisebrook station/overpass. That metal strip up the top where the up ramp meets the bridge gets me frequently when it's wet, which it was this morning for some reason.
