Almost Half Way Devils Throne Reroute
Wednesday 12 April 2017
On the day prior to the scheduled work we learnt that Pinnacle Road may be closed until 10 AM, because of helicopter shuttling track materials. By late afternoon notice was received that the road would in fact be open, so the work was able to go ahead.
|Peter clearing vegetation|
The previous day’s rain was still sitting on the bushes as low cloud cover didn’t permit dispersal. Sun did eventually arrive and it became a very pleasant day. Initially the best route had to be selected before the clearing work could commence. Progress was good especially considering that quite a bit of the work involved cutting dense low vegetation and 165 metres of new track was done. This brings our overall length cut to 310 metres leaving 450 metres to go.
