Cane train alert
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.
