Temporary Closure of Sandy Cape Track


The Parks and Wildlife Service has advised that the Sandy Cape Track on Tasmania's West Coast will be closed temporarily to all traffic from 8 August, 2008.

Parks and Wildlife Service North-West Region manager Alex Simpson said the timber bridge at No Man's Creek in the Arthur Pieman Conservation Area was in very poor condition.

"The decision to close the track follows recent inspections and assessments of a number of bridges in the conservation area as part of our asset management program," Mr Simpson said.

"The bridge at No Man's Creek presents a risk to users.

"The PWS is committed to restoring access to the area as soon as possible and will seek input from a number of stakeholders to assess options for a replacement bridge."
