17 km extension to the Southern Flinders Rail Trail in South Australia commences
Posted on 31/05/21
The existing 22km Southern Flinders Rail Trail rail trail from Wilmington to Melrose is being extended by 17km from Melrose to Booleroo Centre. Work is progressing well with 5km having been levelled, compacted and topped with compacted fine gravel. Work on this section is expected to be completed by the end of June 2021.
Funding has also been secured to extend the trail from Booleroo Centre to Stone Hut which connects to an existing rail trail south to Laura. This work will be carried out in 2021/2022.
On completion of the construction works the rail trail will extend from Wilmington to Laura, a distance of 88km.
What a great view of Mount Remarkable from the new section of the Rail Trail!
