According to reports in the Examiner Newspaper and ABC Northern Tasmania radio (13 June), Forestry Tasmania has re-opened the access roads to the Blue Tier which had been shut due to washouts since last year.
Hopefully this means that access to Poimena and the top of the Blue Tier Descent is open again.
If anyone gets up there and confirms it let us know.
According to the Examiner Newspaper both major parties have committed to extending the $1.47million federal government grant for the North East Rail Trail.
The grant which was set aside for the recreational walking and cycle path is due to expire in March 2020 and the North East Recreation Trail Committee was concerned that the promised money would be lost if the work had not begun by then.
The Premier of Tasmania has announced a contribution of $1.86 million to fund a new Coastal Pathway between Cooee and Wynyard, bringing the vision of a pathway across the North-West Coast a step closer to fruition. The other half ($1.84 million) of the funding for the $3.7 million project is being jointly funded with the Waratah-Wynyard and Burnie City councils Coastal Pathway to Link Wynyard and Burnie.
