Gipps Street Bridge

Having lived in Abbotsford and walked by the Yarra for many years I have no problem in sharing the paths with bikes.

However, the Gipps Street bridge is a disaster waiting to happen. Riders fly over the bridge at high speed completely ignoring the dismount signs. This bridge is also used by families, people with dogs and (in my case) pregnant women.

Bike riders come down the hill from Yarra Boulevard and have little or no regard for the other people who are also entitled to use the bridge as a crossing point.

The Council should erect barricades at either end of the bridge before someone is seriously injured.
