Large numbers of pedestrians and vehciles accessing an underground carpark has polished the concrete surface which becomes incredible slippery when wet. I slipped this morning but managed to not fall over.

  • When damp or even more-so when wet, this area of concrete which forms part of the footpath, becomes incredibly slippery. I know of 2 people who have fallen.
