Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WITH the Proser­pine sugar mill’s cane crush now un­der­way, res­i­dents and vis­i­tors of all ages are re­minded to be on the look­out for cane trains.

Wil­mar Sugar’s com­mu­nity re­la­tions gen­eral man­ager John Pratt is en­cour­ag­ing par­ents to talk to their chil­dren about the dangers of cane trains and the im­por­tance of keep­ing off the cane rail­way net­work.

“Chil­dren should never play, walk or ride their bikes or quad bikes on cane rail­way tracks, or along the rail cor­ri­dor,” he said.

“They also shouldn’t fish or dive off cane rail­way bridges.”

Cane trains op­er­ate 24 hours a day, seven days a week through­out the crush­ing sea­son.
