  • Roe Highway is sinking

    Well bits of it are in Midland. It looks like some really heavy trucks are causing the road to drop where the tyre tracks go and there are substantial ridges of Tarmac on either side. Probably need to be a bit careful when splitting or filtering.

        Try Melbourne.

        Some roads have 'ruts' a solid 6 inches deep and about 1-2 feet wide in each wheel track.

        Not even kidding.

        I will never complain about WA's road surfaces again.

                  Yeah I've noticed the RaB on Beechboro Rd where it goes off to Hepburn Ave is developing some bad ridges heading north, I could see it may be an issue if you came flying north up Beechboro and cranked it over to continue north

                    There's quite a few bad parts on Roe heading toward Midland from Welshpool Rd onward iirc. That's Perth roads really. They could be better, they could be worse. It is what it is.

                          The one to be aware of is the Toodyay rd junction when your heading towards Midland. Left hand lane just before the lights. Nearly yanked the steering wheel out of my hands last night. :/ I'll make sure to avoid that one when I'm riding
