The View Road Reserve Pump Track and Cycle Path is progressing as planned, however as many in the community would have observed, works on the site paused over the Easter break, and consistent rainfall since that time has prevented the Contractor Ridemore from resuming substantive work.

Rainfall during June has impacted ground conditions and clay materials on site which has prevented resumption of work on the pump track, and the weather is not expected to improve in the next two months as higher than average rainfall is forecast.

Based on the forward weather forecast, to ensure the safety of operators and to avoid the potential for re-work, there will be a delay in the resumption of the Pump Track work until around September, conditions pending.

Ridemore are committed to keeping the project moving forward and will continue to work on the Mountain Bike Trails as ground conditions and the weather allow. Both Council and Ridemore are very much looking forward to substantive resumption of works later in the year and completion of the project in readiness for warmer weather before Christmas. The site will remain secure when works are not in progress.

Council would like to thank the community, and particularly the cycling community for their patience in the progress of the project, and will keep you updated.
