RTRA Calls for Clearing of Access Road

04-Mar-2008

Following complaints from members the RTRA has written to Gingin Shire about the state of the access road into the Lancelin ORV area. The Shire has traditionally cleared windblown sand from from the road, but recently the sand has reached proportions that make the road virtually impassable - certainly for two-wheel drive vehicles.

RTRA has expressed concern over the resultant risk of people who are trying to dig or push bogged vehicles being hit by other vehicles charging their way across the sand.

The Shire has also erected signage warning that they will fine anyone who parks outside the main car park area (which many people can no longer get to!). We have had reports of people being told by the Shire that the road to the ORV Area is only suitable for four wheel drives. We have sought clarification of this and will let members know when we have a response from the Shire.

We encourage you to contact us if you have first-hand experience of difficulties getting through to the car parking area, being fined for not parking in the main car park area or other related concerns.

You can read the letter to Gingin Shire here.
