Work delay on St Columba Falls track

26/05/2006

The re-opening of the walking track in the St Columba Falls State Reserve has been delayed.

The Minister for Tourism, Arts and the Environment, Paula Wriedt, said additional engineering advice is being sought on a 20 metre section of the track damaged by heavy rain in October last year.

"This part of the track is on a very steep sided slope," Ms Wriedt said.

"Difficulties have arisen because the load-bearing structures, which are necessary for the repairs, are not able to be located on solid ground.

"Alternative designs are being sort to address this problem.

"Safety is paramount in the construction of any public facilities."

Ms Wriedt said an upgraded drainage system has been installed but until the trackwork is completed, access to the base of St Columba Falls will remain closed.

"The falls are a spectacular attraction and can still be viewed from the car park," she said.
