  • (soon to be) RIP Seventh Ave Bridge, Maylands

    Just checking the tenders for work and I’m sad to report that the Seventh Ave bridge is going to be demolished and replaced. If you haven’t yet ridden it, make sure you do before it’s gone For those who are unaware of its existence, it's very easy to launch off (but take it easy first time round... there's also a tight left, and intersection at the end to negotiate)





    Killjoy tender details - clicky - a site visit will be held at the Bridge Site at 23 Jan, 2014 11:00 AM - you all know how best to protest (binning you shit while doing so is not an option)

      No documents to be downloaded in order to find out construction details, they have to be collected from the Main Roads orrifice. The only info I can find on the tender is this:
      Seventh Avenue Bridge No 908A over Rail, Railway Parade & Whatley Crescent, City of Bayswater.Deconstruction of the existing Bridge No. 908 and replacement with a new four span concrete bridge.

          Had fond mems of launching the SXV over it and getting pinned by the popo on the other side.... They were waiting for peeps to run the Stop sign so I was a bonus
          Rest in Peace

            hmmm... My Tard/Bikes has been there quite a few times on the way to InLaws on the other side in Inglewood

            For a car it is scary though. Remember it in my first car Escort Coupe, was very interesting on the landing...
            Peace out

              [MENTION=6802]millsy[/MENTION] lived for a while in the block of flats right next door. You heard all sorts of expensive sounding noises from that bridge

              RIP to a challenging bit of road.

                I don't live anywhere near there any more, but that was always fun to ride :-\
                “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

                      Shouldn't we be out protesting that this is a heritage wooden bridge that we need to save..... Or we could try to argue that it is a nice place for a motorcyclist to ride, but I don't think it would be taken seriously

                        Oh man. This was the route I took to my parents place from my old Maylands apartment.
                        That bridge was responsible for making the tired old suspension of two TRX's that little bit more so.
                        RIP you magnificent bastard.

                          Used to launch my 1974 Celica on that fabulous bridge while whistling the 'Dukes of Hazard' theme.

                          Good times.

                            I used to have a 68 MKII GT Cortina that got a bit of enjoyment out of that bridge.....
