VIC Trail Bike Initiative

The Victorian Government's Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) has called for input from trail bike riders regarding the draft concept plan of a proposed Trail Bike Visitor Area near Powelltown, about 100km east of Melbourne.

According to the DSE, the purpose of the area is to: "…provide a well designed unloading area in State forest where riders can safely unload their bikes and where facilities and information are provided to aid their use of the forest road network".

Thompson Berrill Landscape Design has been employed to produce the draft concept plan, which thus far includes a car park equipped to handle car/trailer combinations as well as utes, plus facilities such as toilets, undercover shelter and an unloading ramp, trail markers and resident zone markers, the latter to alert riders to the fact that they are about to enter an area close to houses.

A meeting has been called for Saturday, June 2, at 1pm at the DSE's Powelltown Office, located at Main Road, Powelltown. All interested parties are invited to attend, and a light BBQ lunch will be provided. For more information call the DSE's Trail Bike Project Officer, Joy Harte, tel: (03) 5965 9923, or simply show up on the day.
