Church Street end now re-opened, but beware of temptation
Finally, after over a year, the Church Street end of the Ted Wilson Trail and western end of Church Street have reopened.
However, avoid the temptation of the new sweeping path down the hill to Fyansford!
The path makes and abrupt halt at the bottom of the long hill – at the edge of the estate. When it will be finished nobody knows. Cyclists need to pedal back up the hill and take the usual route along Hyland Street to access Fyansford.
Riding along the re-opened Ted Wilson Trail isn’t all roses either. The path is seriously overgrown with weeds, which are beginning to compromise the integrity of the path surface. Hopefully, CoGG will soon rectify this. (If you have Snap, Send, Solve on your phone – send in a request to have this fixed. The more people who do so, the more likelihood of fast action.)
We note that the Ted Wilson Trail is now closed between Bacchus Marsh Road and Anakie Road for 5 months from 8th January till 8th June. Cyclists detour to Matthews Road, and have to negotiate the very busy multi-land roundabout at Cox, Anakie and Matthews Road.
