Access during construction

The construction phase is scheduled from August to November 2021. During this time there will some closures to Bonnie Vale for the safety of visitors and work crews.

A significant number of heavy truck movements will be required, particularly in the early stages of the construction phase.

This may impact on pedestrian access across Bonnie Vale including the walking track between Maianbar and Bonnie Vale with part-time closures.

Any closures will be notified via onsite signage, the project webpage, the NPWS alerts and their newsletter. Details will be available in the coming weeks.

Please note, weather and other factors can impact on construction schedules and some closures or impacts may be necessary at short notice. NPWS will make every effort to provide accurate information on closures as early as possible.

Updates will be available via the project webpage. If onsite work is being carried out, alerts will be published on the NPWS Visitor webpage and through onsite signage.
