TAMS sets up a community group to sort out Bruce Ridge

By johnboy - 29 March 2011 0

Territory And Municipal Services have put out an intriguing media release on the process they’re using to formalise some bike trails on Bruce Ridge, and shut down others entirely.

The first meeting of a new community group ‘Friends of Bruce Ridge’ will be held tomorrow night to discuss what informal cycling trails in Bruce Ridge Nature Reserve should be formalised and which should be rehabilitated, Stephen Hughes, Manager, Parks, Reserves and Rural Lands announced
today.

“After an assessment of the ecological values of Bruce Ridge and a community consultation process earlier this year, the Government has agreed to the formalisation of some of the informal cycling tracks in Bruce Ridge Nature Reserve,” Mr Hughes said.

“It was found these tracks could be formalised to provide safety, clarity for cyclists and pedestrians and social benefits without impacting on flora and fauna.

“Given the number and range of trails, we are now looking to progress this project with a community group, ‘Friends of Bruce Ridge’, to assist in determining which existing tracks should be maintained for recreational use and which should be rehabilitated.”

Facilitator of the local community mountain biking website, ‘The Berm‘, and inaugural member of Friends of Bruce Ridge, Morgan Small, praised the Government for undertaking this initiative in conjunction with the local community.

The meeting will be at 5.30 on 30 March at the Stromlo Depot, 500 Cotter Road, Weston Creek. Quite some way from Bruce Ridge.
