Parks Victoria is reminding visitors to Greater Bendigo National Park to exercise caution over the next few months as flood recovery works are underway. Road works including the replacement of culverts and grading are in progress, and some roads and tracks may be temporarily closed to protect public safety as works proceed.
“Parks Victoria has engaged a contractor to restore roads and drainage within the One Tree Hill, Mandurang, Whipstick and Kamarooka areas of Greater Bendigo National Park,” said David Major, Ranger in Charge, Northern Goldfields, Parks Victoria.
“Motorists and cyclists need to be aware of trucks and earthmoving machinery operating on nominated roads and tracks.
“Recent heavy rains have also impacted some recently graded roads making them unsuitable for vehicle access.”
As a result, rangers have closed Wildflower Drive within the One Tree Hill section of the park until driving conditions improve.
“It is particularly important that people take extra care, reduce their speed and respect any closures as some roads and tracks are very slippery and may become boggy after rain,” said Mr Major.
Parks Victoria apologises to local residents and park visitors for any inconvenience.
Visitors are advised to check local conditions before they travel. For more information please contact 13 1963 or visit www.parks.vic.gov.au.
