Please note the following update from:
Ben Merritt, Community Partnership Support Officer – Ovens District. Hume Region, Forest Fire Mangement Victoria.
I have previously sent you information about the bridge and road works that my department was conducting in the Mountain Creek and Trappers Gap area northeast of Mount Beauty.
I need to update you with 3 pieces of information
- Both Mountain Creek Road and Trappers Gap Road south of the Trappers Gap bridge, have been assessed as 4WD only roads. They are both currently unsuitable for AWD and 2WD traffic.
- Both Mountain Creek Road and Trappers Gap Road south of the Trappers Gap bridge will be temporarily closed to all traffic, if predicted rainfall will lead to traffic further damaging the road surface.
- Our statewide team have advised that bridge works will be conducted on the Mountain Creek Road between 31 July and 4 August. Drivers are urged to use Gundowring Road and Kiewa Valley Highway.
