A Wellington Park Bushcare event

Although we have done quite a number of track work sessions with PWS this is probably the first time that our normal working bee has been used for that purpose. One of our biggest turnouts resulted, so track work was not an unpopular change.

Three PWS staff worked with us in clearing the 90 metres of new track to bypass a boggy section. In addition the old track still to be used was trimmed. A few short sections had some rock hardening and where it went over some rocky spots some work was done to make crossing easier.

Poles were installed to mark the track and also some in other locations where confusion could arise. Pointing markers will be added shortly.

A very satisfying days work and the new track looks good.


Photos including some before and after are online.
