A Photo a Day of Christchurch New Zealand

Mind your Step

Spotted on Ferry Road by the Ferrymead Bridge works. I actually tripped over this ramp about 8 days ago – but luckily I didn’t fall over as I managed to recover my balance. But I did give myself a bit of a fright. They didn’t have the warning on it when I had my incident, so I am glad to see they’ve highlighted the damage rather brightly.

If someone walks on the ramp before you, the back of it flips up – hence the trip I went on. Actually, I think it could trip you up even if someone else was not walking over it… Oh the joys of navigating one’s way around Christchurch eh!

    I’m sure glad you recovered your balance during that ‘adventure’ and there is now a bright sign there warning everybody now. Please do stay safe!

    One mystery that’s a bit puzzling… Why is this ramp covered with chicken wire?

    I think the chicken wire is there for grip – so people don’t slip on it in the wet.
