Wollumbin NP back on track with road re-opened

THE full length of Mount Warning Road has been re-opened to traffic after council completed essential land slip restoration work.

The road to Wollumbin/Mount Warning has been closed to traffic beyond Kurrumbyn Creek since November 25, while council crews repaired the land slip and removed overhanging rock.

Mayor Barry Longland, said the walking track was a huge drawcard for visitors and Tweed residents and the repairs were vital for the safety of the many vehicles that travel along that road.

Destination Tweed's Chief Executive Officer, Bill Tatchell, said the track's closure during the past year, while the road and storm damage to the track were repaired, had strongly reaffirmed the importance of Mt Warning to the region's tourism industry.

"We can now look forward to strong visitation to the iconic Mount Warning and surrounds over the summer holidays," Mr Tatchell said.
