Roadworks at Narawntapu National Park


Major roadworks have begun at Narawntapu National Park ahead of the busy holiday season.

Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) Northern Region manager Chris Colley said the work involves repairing, re-shaping, grading and gravelling approximately six kilometres of access roads within the park.

This includes the Bakers Point road from the visitor centre to the Springlawn and Koybaa campgrounds at Bakers Point as well as the beach access road to Griffiths Point.

"The roadworks are expected to take several weeks and it is hoped they will be completed before the Christmas holiday," Mr Colley said.

Visitors travelling to the park are asked to take care and be mindful that trucks and other earthmoving equipment will be working on these roads as well as travelling to and from the park during this period.

The works are part of the PWS Priority Asset Maintenance Program which includes State Government funding of $12 million over four years for maintenance of visitor facilities and assets within Tasmania's parks and reserves.
