Kangaroo Ground to Yarra Glen

Discussion in 'Hazardous Road Condition Reports' at netrider.net.au started by Tooley, Jan 14, 2010.

  1. There are currently roadworks (road widening/shoulder repair) happening between Kangaroo Ground to Yarra Glen.

    I was riding through the roadworks at the sign posted speed (40kmph) and noticed little gravel on the main road surface. As per usual the limit is in place for several hundred meters past the part they were working on.

    When the end roadworks sign appeared I accelerated back to 80kmph and about 150mtrs up the road I lent in to a right hander just as I noticed "A LOT" of gravel all over the road.

    Lost the back end a little in the gravel and kept going.

    Please be careful on this stretch of road and don't always believe the END ROADWORK sign.

    Cheers, and safe riding!

  2. Compared to what that road used to be, nothing is bad. ;)

    It was previously constructed using sustainable materials such as potholes and tree roots.
