Granite Creek bridge improves off-road safety


A new bridge at Granite Creek on the Climies Track, linking Trial Harbour and Granville Harbour, will improve safety for mountain bike riders, bushwalkers and four-wheel drive enthusiasts.

The Granite Creek project has been managed by the Parks and Wildlife Service and is part of the Government’s stimulus package for the West Coast. Several years ago, the bridge over Granite Creek collapsed which added to the difficulty and risk of using Climies Track.

The project will be finished today and the Climies Track will be open in time for the Easter break.

Although the bridge has improved safety at Granite Creek this track is still rated as ‘hard’ and users should be well prepared.
