Slip­pery slide over off Cir­cuit Road

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS / PEOPLE -

VISI­TORS trav­el­ling to the High Coun­try via the Cir­cuit Road are be­ing warned to steer clear of the road edges.

Con­tin­ued wet weather, com­bined with the cooler spring tem­per­a­tures, have meant the road edges are un­usu­ally soft and prone to giv­ing way.

Forest Fire Man­age­ment Vic­to­ria has com­menced their an­nual pro­gram of clear­ing roads and un­der­tak­ing main­te­nance works on roads and tracks through­out the forest, but re­cently a de­part­ment gravel truck rolled off Cir­cuit Road be­com­ing a vic­tim of the soft edges. No one was in­jured in the in­ci­dent. Driv­ers on forest roads are urged to drive safely ac­cord­ing to the con­di­tions and be­ware of soft road edges.

For more in­for­ma­tion about road clo­sures and changes of con­di­tions go to www. park­web.vic.gov.au or check the Pub­lic Ac­cess Map at www.delwp.vic.gov.au for any pro­longed clo­sures.

Al­ter­na­tively, you can con­tact the DELWP Mans­field of­fice on (03) 5733 1200.

SOFT EDGE WARN­ING: DELWP has is­sued a warn­ing to High Coun­try driv­ers to be aware of soft edges on roads fol­low­ing a very wet win­ter.
