Water Reforms a Risk for Riders

30-Sep-2013

The RTRA is gearing up for a campaign to protect riders' rights to access twin trail and minor roads in country water catchment areas. 

On Thursday September 26 the Government announced plans to bring the Country Areas Water Supply Act into line with the Metropolitan Act. The significance of this for riders is that the Metropolitan Act makes it an offence to ride on anything other than a 'graded, gravelled, sealed, primed or other prepared surface'. Goodbye twin track and unformed bush tracks in vast areas that are designated as country catchment areas. 

We are currently seeking clarification from the Department of Water and will bring you further information as soon as possible.
