Great North Walk to receive upgrade

The NSW Government will spend $1.12 million to upgrade the Great North Walk from Sydney to Newcastle, Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Mr Adam Crouch has announced.

Track surfaces on the Great North Walk will be upgraded in key sections by laying gravel and repairing steps and stairs to reduce slipperiness and improve drainage, he said.

"This investment will make it easier for bushwalkers to get out and enjoy the incredible natural beauty that makes living here so special," Mr Crouch said.

"The fantastic scenery and bushland of the Central Coast also draws in visitors who spend money in our area, so this investment is good news for the many businesses and jobs that are boosted by the tourism industry."

The National Parks and Wildlife Service has announced closures and works on the Great North Walk in Brisbane Water National Park.

The Warrah Trig track from Patonga Drive will remain closed to vehicles until at least Sunday, October 23, after having been closed for several months.

"Warrah Trig Rd is closed to vehicles until further notice due to damage from recent rainfall events," the National Parks website states.

"The road has deep ruts and boggy sections, making it unsafe and impassable for vehicles.

"The road is open to pedestrians and cyclists.

"However, wet sections may be slippery.

"Alternate pedestrian access to Warrah lookout is available via Pearl Beach to Patonga fire trail.

"Penalties apply for non-compliance."

Other planned events: Notice of fire trail maintenance program

NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is

The service has also announced it is currently undertaking fire trail maintenance works in Brisbane Water National Park for a period of up to six months to March next year.

"The maintenance work will repair damaged drainage assets and infrastructure that supports and is essential to the ongoing operation of the trails.

"Trails will remain open for the duration of the construction works, with adequate signage and diversions (if required) in place."

The Great North Walk comprises 300 kilometres of connecting tracks that bring bushwalkers through pristine and scenic parts of Lane Cove National Park, Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, Brisbane Water National Park and Watagan State Forest.
