    About half way between the Hume FWY and Mickleham Road on the Donnybrook road west bound, there are 2 large pot holes in the road. Ok for a car, bad for a bike. Unlit area too.

    There is house construction either side of the road. The holes have been repaired numerous times but when it rains they reappear.

    VicRoads notified.

  2. Credit to Vic Roads....... On the way to work and there was a team repairing these holes. Not just filling with a bit of asphalt, compacting and heading off, but dug substantially away from and down from the affected area and look to have done a proper repair. All done now, let's see how it goes.

    The VR report line seems to work, in this case anyhow. I said that the road was a hazard for bikes, which it was and they must have agreed.

    Whatever, thanks Vic Roads!
  3. We as motorcyclists get into a mindset of a Siege Mentality. A sense of common victimisation. That probably leads to us under-reporting road hazards. We report the matter to our peers but not to the authorities.Your example shows we shouldn't be so insular and expect the authorities won't do anything. A good result Brett.

    So if you are a Victorian add the reporting number to your mobile phone 13 11 70. Other states will have similar reporting options.
