Redlands Coast conservation areas re-open


Redlands Coast’s Eastern Escarpment and Don and Christine Burnett reserves have re-opened in time for the Easter break.

Mayor Karen Williams said work to repair tracks significantly eroded by the recent intense rainfall in both of the high-use areas was completed yesterday.

“Our crews have done a remarkable job getting these two popular areas open again in time for the extra-long weekend, as they were heavily waterlogged and took quite some time to dry out,” Cr Williams said.

“Work is continuing within the Bayview Conservation Park and the Scribbly Gums Conservation Area, where water was still flowing down tracks a week after the deluge, and these will be opened once erosion control and track construction works are completed.”
