  • Repair works on trail where scouring has occurred on sections of trail on North South Road and Timboon Peterborough Road

Q & As

How will dual use be emphasised in areas of high pedestrian /cyclist traffic?

The trail design between Port Campbell and the Carpark lookout is concrete path or boardwalk. The path will be linemarked with a centre line and symbols denoting shared path.

What is the purpose of the black poles along sections of the trail?

Where the drop-off along the trail is greater than one metre, fencing needs to be installed to meet safety requirements. This will be similar to pool fencing so vegetation can still be viewed.
