[VIC] Bolte Bridge - Northbound

Discussion in 'Hazardous Road Condition Reports' at netrider.net.au started by Whitey, Nov 4, 2011.

  1. Lots of resurfacing works from around Footscray Rd heading north. Road has been ground up with lots of loose gravel/bitumen.

  3. I think it started from around the off ramp & went northbound to near Racecourse Rd (Eastern Fwy turnoff). They are resurfacing most of the bridge/freeway area & it seems to be progressing section by section. The dodgy areas will probably change on a weekly basis so just watch out. It is signed for roadworks & reduced speed limit so there is some warning.

  4. Especially important if your working on your cornering on the first on ramp. Cars traveling at 60ish on the big sweeper.

  5. Took the Missus to the airport tonight in the cage and went over the Bolte.....
    Definitely lots of score marks all over the road from grinding off white lines.
    Changing lanes (especially in the wet) deserves extra caution.
