It’s now a regular occurrence- people accessing the cliff above the Sea Cliff Bridge to gain a better vantage point- with exceptional views of the bridge and the coastline.
The area however is extremely dangerous, with one man losing his footing on the loose gravel at the top last September, and falling to his death.
However, photographers and sightseers continue to climb to the top.
While there have been calls to formalise the area and erect a fence, an RMS spokesperson says it doesn’t look like that will happen any time soon.
“Roads and Maritime is not aware of plans for additional fencing at any area above Sea Cliff Bridge,” she says.
“The Roads and Maritime Services carries out regular safety reviews of Sea Cliff Bridge and urges all visitors to exercise caution, and to walk only along the dedicated walkway on the new bridge.”
“Additional signage which warns the public access to the old roadway is prohibited was installed in October 2018.”
“There is currently a fence at the southern end of the bridge with a sign in place informing the community there is no access beyond that point.
