Keep out! Wollumbin is still under construction

WHILE work to reopen the summit track at Wollumbin/Mount Warning National Park is progressing well, people are reminded that it is not yet safe to enter.

National Parks and Wild- life Service regional operations co-ordinator John Fisher said as extensive damaged caused by ex-tropical cyclone Oswald in January is cleared, the next stage of track stabilisation is beginning.

"Nine priority areas of track have been identified that will need to be either stabilised or new track diversions built," Mr Fisher said. These high-risk sites are being worked on, and despite recent wet weather crews are working hard to get the track re-opened later this year, he added.

However, some people are worryingly disregarding the park's closed signs.

The ground underfoot is still very dangerous and so it is imperative the public doesn't try to access the track.

"Wollumbin is currently a construction zone and we are again reminding people the Wollumbin National Park remains closed."

Mr Fisher reminded people to respect park closures for their safety. Anyone who ignores them risked a fine of $300-$3300."
