The Esplanade - Mount Martha - OIL !!!

Discussion in 'Hazardous Road Condition Reports' started by MelbourneMick, Feb 7, 2012.

  1. Morning All,

    Just got back from a morning run down the Peninsula. I came back along the Esplanade heading towards Mornington. So this relates to the Morington bound lane.
    Basically starting at Martha Cove there are oil patches every few feet and in nearly every corner right up until the round about at the intersection of the Esplanade and Dominion Rd wherethere is a massive patch of oil as you enter and through the round about.
    With the light rain that was there this morning it was like an ice rink.

    Take care,
  2. Geez MM, you on holidays???
  3. Thanks for the heads up. I'm working down here today
  4. Arvo shift matey so making the most of the mornings. Slipin and a slidin !
  5. No worries fella. It wasn't pretty !
  6. But the oil makes such purdy colours!
  7. very true! it is an exercise in hypnotic target avoidance
  8. Also on the esplanade past the shops through the twstie bits theres quite a lot of gravel on most of the corners, more than usual and its all over the road on most of the corners!
