Here’s information regarding the Worsleys Track closure


“The closure of Worsleys Rd was undertaken through the use of a temporary traffic management plan. This closure was notified by pre-warning signage on-site, as is required for temporary closures. As this is not a permanent closure, consultation as per road stopping process was not needed.”

Mr Thomas said Worsley’s Track will be closed to cars and motor-cycles until late August next year “due to concerns about fire risk.”

There are quite a few local people pushing for it’s permanent closure however so it may become permanent.
