This could be a real who done it mystery, this is the ultimate "Hawaiian good luck sign" to the public, every time it rains the "Slippery when wet" signs comes out. Just lately I have noticed while walking on the long ramp between Joseph Bank terrace and the Remuera road entry path to the train station, there is what looks like ½ a "Slippery when wet" sign. this is just below where pedestrians do a 'U' turn on the ramp. In fact you can see the sign from where you would stand at the top of the escalator. It appears to me the engineers who designed Newmarket do not give a toss about safety. [ONE] When it rains the pedestrian walk ways gets wet. [TWO] the footpaths leading up to the train station are very smooth. [THREE] The train station is riddled with footpath cancer. One has to ask how did this sign get there as I have told a couple of the staff that work at the train and all that happens is the receipt of "Thank you" I Suggest to the engineers who designed this station a couple of scenarios. [scenario one] That the staff have had a G'full of putting out the signs when it rains, lost their cool one day throw the signs on the concrete and dumped the remains in the garden. [scenario two] a pedestrian tripped over the sign on their rush to catch a train after they missed the train released their pressure out on the defenceless sign then dumped the remains in the garden. I could be wrong, all the same it would of been a good show to watch, it would of made my day and he/she would of been me ever lasting hero. Why can't there be a entry point from the long ramp to the top of the escalator, is this just too simple to design? So one has to ask when one is about to miss the last train at about 6pm to Pukekohe is anyone in their right mind going to slow down on a wet slippery footpath? at least you get a trip to the hospital instead of a long road walk from Papakura to Pukekohe and face the much more dangerous lethal motorist.
