BTW. As of today the speed limit on the road from Warburton to the top of Donna Buang has been lowered to 80kph.

Tks for the heads-up.
It's been getting rough and bumpy enough over the last few years to make 80 plenty adventurous in many sections. And that was even pre-CoVid...

The big washout and “temporary” traffic lights are still about half way between Warburton and Cement Creek. There is another washout and “temporary” traffic lights on the gravel of the Acheron Way after the saddle on the Marysville side. Grantons Road however is in good Nick.

Oh yeah. The washout and “temporary” traffic lights that were on the Reefton Spur in late November are also still there.

Early morning ride before it warms up and the traffic gets silly.

Reefton, Black Spur, home by 11.30 and mow the lawn :D

Traffic waiting to turn left at McIntyre Lane towards Yarra Glen was banked up about 2 kms. Good start to Easter for some :rolleyes:

Wasn't much fun yesterday, new coat of 1.5"-2" gravel for most of it.
Too much work for an old fart like me.

It's off the list for the "Targa'21" ride. Rather use the asphalt to Narbethong instead.

I can't believe that they have laid 2"of gravel on it in 5 days. Must be a perception thing. If we are going via the Acheron Way and Marysville I will be heading along Grantons road to check out this gravel.

If you continue past Grantons Rd, Old Coach Rd crosses the Acheron Way. If you turn left, it comes out near the pub, and if you turn right it comes out towards Marysville. Nice dirt rd, not as far up as Grantons, have not been on it for a month or so, but an alternative.
 
Project completed.
We have now walked the entire length of the O'Shannassy Aqueduct trail in both directions plus I've done the Aqueduct to Mt Donna Buang via Mt Victoria trail.
Time to find somewhere else.
