An unmarked steel plate has recently been installed on the east path of Commonwealth Avenue bridge at the northern end. We have been aware of at least one rider who after cycling over the plate has careered into the guardrail and fallen heavily on the concrete. Riders should take care when cycling over the east path on Commonwealth Avenue Bridge as there are no warning signs in place.
BREAKING NEWS! Following from our timely advocacy on this matter, the National Capital Authority has acted to install hi-visibility, non-slip tape to both sides of the cover and agreed to investigate the option of signage to alert riders.
