Bright Trails to build new DP trails

Myrtleford Times - - Letters To The Editor -

ALPINE Shire Coun­cil was last night ex­pected to an­nounce Bright Trails as the con­trac­tor to build more moun­tain bike tracks at Din­ner Plain.

The works will in­clude the con­struc­tion of 3.8 kilo­me­tres of new trail in­clud­ing two el­e­vated struc­tures, and the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of 590 me­tres of re­dun­dant trail.

Plan­ning for the de­vel­op­ment of new moun­tain bike trails in Din­ner Plain com­menced in 2015 and ap­prov- als to add 7.1km of trail were se­cured in 2017.

Stage one of the project, 3.3km of new trail, was suc­cess­fully de­liv­ered ear­lier this year.

The 3.8km of ad­di­tional trail for stage two will pro­vide riders of all abil­i­ties with ac­cess to over 18km of rid­able ter­rain at Din­ner Plain.

Alpine Shire Coun­cil di­rec­tor as­sets Will Jeremy said the Din­ner Plain com­mu­nity had been en­gaged throughout plan­ning for new moun­tain bike trails, from the de­vel­op­ment of a trail mas­ter­plan through to im­ple­men­ta­tion.

“The lo­cal moun­tain bike club, DP Riders, has played an ac­tive role throughout the project and con­tin­ues to sup­port the im­ple­men­ta­tion and main­te­nance of the trail net­work,” he said.

Along with con­struc­tion of the new trail next year, ex­ist­ing sig­nage will up­graded and ad­di­tional sig­nage put in place.
