This survey took place in daylight. However, the walk will be at night – there is little street lighting along the majority of the walk.
It is important that every possible hazard is marked and notice given to the walkers.
The railway at Corio Quay poses a particular problem. The are two rail lines, each with angled chicanes – impossible for a 5.5×1.4m canoe to negotiate. A detour along Corio Quay Road (which has a railway overpass) seems the only alternative.
On the plus side, there is an eerie beauty walking past the silent northern docks and industry at night.
