Traffic Management Madness

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by FALCON-LORD, Jun 7, 2010.

  1. Well Someone obviously left there thinking hat at home when they set up the traffic management for roadwork along Docklands Bvd (Which are apparently going on until Oct 31) They have blocked off the right lane for the entire length between Lonsdale and Bourke This includes blocking off the right turning lane at the end (Including the sensor that tells that someone wants to turn). So there is now no legal way to do a right turn, and only one lane. So every time someone gets there who wants to turn right it blocks all traffic until they realize they have no option but to take a different turn or do it illegally.
    Traffic was backed to past the Bolte Freeway, and no mention of roadwork until after the Dudley St turnoff.

  2. VicRoads Hazard Reporting Hotline 131 170
  3. Thanks for that.
    Gave em a call, they were quite receptive.
  4. Let us know if you were succesful. It would be a good number to have.
  5. The same geniuses who decided to close off 25% of the throughput capabilities of St Kilda Road, presumably.
  6. Over here in WA I've had very good responses from Main Roads' hazard hotline. Thing is, once a hazard's been reported, AFAIK it's much more likely that the roads authority can be held liable if there's a crash.

    Good job they take notice, really, 'cos the traffic management contractors that Main Roads use operate at about the standard of a retarded five year old.
  7. Well this morning they set the turn arrow to go to green every cycle ignoring if there was a vehicle over the induction loop, so things were much better.
  8. I think you will find it was a slightly different bunch of idiots that put that one in place, but yes it is a ridiculous creation of congestion.
