Trail works get underway

East Gippsland Rail Trail committee of management has secured funding from the Federal Government, through Member for Gippsland, Darren Chester, to reseal the section of trail from McEacharn Street, East Bairnsdale, to the Nicholson River Bridge.

Preliminary works for this long awaited upgrade commenced last week and will continue this week, with the reseal to take place after the Melbourne Cup long weekend.

The trail will remain open during the preliminary works, however, sections will be closed during the reseal to allow the necessary machinery to access the trail.

Users of the trail may be asked to find alternate routes whilst these works are undertaken. Daily updates will be available on East Gippsland Rail Trail’s Facebook page.
