Walkers on Mt Panorama urged to be cautious

Walkers on Mt Panorama urged to be cautious

Mount Panorama management is warning walkers on the Mount that, by ignoring basic safety rules, they are risking being seriously injured or even killed.

 Mount Panorama circuit manager Mark Rayner says he has been approached by drivers and residents of the mountain, complaining about the way in which people are walking the circuit.

 Mr Rayner says the biggest issue is that people are ignoring the most fundamental rule of always facing oncoming vehicles, and instead walking with their backs to the traffic.

 Mr Rayner also emphasised the point that, even though the speed limit is sixty kilometres per hour, it is no secret that people fly around the track, and when you mix speed with blind sighted drivers and walkers the consequences can be dire.
