Funding Announced To Address Safety Concerns on Main Yarra Trail

Thursday 25 July, 2013

The State Government has announced $480,000 in funding for works to address safety issues on the floating sections of the Main Yarra Trail.

Repair works will commence on Friday 26 July and will initially focus on minimising issues with ice forming on the surface of the trail, improving signage and surface cleaning. Planning is also underway to conduct dredging to remove silt build up under the floating pontoons.

Parks Victoria is working to reopen the floating sections of the Main Yarra Trail as soon as possible and we apologise for the inconvenience while we work to address these issues.

Cyclists are reminded to ride safely and alter riding behaviour to suit the conditions of alternate routes.

Updates, including links to the media release issued by the State Government and frequently asked questions, are available here: www.parks.vic.gov.au/mainyarratrail
