Incident type: Close call
Location of incident: -4 Kilby Road, Kew Victoria 3102, Australia


Three joggers on coming across the path so I decided to take the main road. Sun rise at eye level in front reducing visibility. A black closed gate against a black road with no reflective markings making it virtually invisible. I was initially distracted by the oncoming joggers as they were three abreast taking up the free space on the path before I had time to register that there was a closed gate blocking the road.
Well done Boroondara council, at least the bollards on the path are a bright yellow with reflectors on them.
