35mm cut down kerb at Thorrington/Colombo is out of compliance with CCC Design code and presents hazard to cyclists. It is also out of compliance with: "Austroads Guide to Traffic engineering Practice Bicycles Part 14 1999 Construction and Maintenance 8.1 General Smooth, debris free surfaces are a fundamental requirement for riding bicycles in safety on paths, and on all roads, from freeways to local streets. ... … Most bicycles have no suspension or shock absorbers and many bicycles have relatively thin tyres inflated to high pressures. Consequently, when a cyclist hits a pothole at speed it is most uncomfortable, difficult to maintain control and potentially hazardous for the cyclist. Surface irregularities that are not noticeable in a motor vehicle on roads can make cycling unpleasant and slow down the travel speed considerably." I met with Alan Beuzenberg of CCC in mid 2010 and was assured this would be fixed. The quakes hit and I have waited patiently for repairs. Please advise when this will be urgently completed.
