BILYA WALK TRACK OPEN AGAIN

Early March saw heavy rainfall across the catchment, culminating in an increase in river flows. It also impacted on the road works along Toodyay Road, near the entry to town. The excess water was causing problems with the roadworks so a contractor was employed to remove this water. The method of disposal has had disasterous consequences to Redbank Pool on the Avon River, the upshot of which was the CLOSURE OF THE BILYA WALK TRACK and JOHN MASTERS BIRD HIDE (from Lloyd Reserve through to Extracts Weir)
This water entered the soil profile, de-stabilising the banks along the trail. As a consequence the trail has been modified.
