Lake Barrington access road work complete


The access road to the Lake Barrington rowing course was re-opened on 20 February following a $40,000 road works program by the Parks and Wildlife Service, just in time for the State Rowing Championships. 

PWS Parks and Reserves manager, Linda Overend said: “It is only a 4 km road, but it is very important to a number of local clubs and the Sheffield community, and we are pleased to now have this improved road standard for access and safety.” 

Works to the access road included; clearing drains, reconstruction of the road shoulder, asphalt repairs, new centre line, traffic signs and guideposts.  This has significantly improved the standard of the road and safety for Rowing Tasmania members, interstate competitors and visitors.  

“We have already had very positive feedback about the road improvements from the rowing community,” Linda said.
