ONGOING safety and maintenance on the Wollumbin/Mt Warning Summit Track will temporarily close Wollumbin/Mt Warning National Park on Wednesday, December 5.
National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Tweed area manager, Damien Hofmeyer said that the work will focus on upgrading sections of the Summit and Lyrebird tracks including step construction and stabilising loose sections of the track and slopes.
"This year's program will also include refurbishment of the Breakfast Creek car park precinct including line marking and establishment of an emergency vehicle area," Mr Hofmey said.
"Though the Wollumbin/Mt Warning National Park closure is scheduled for December 5, but December 6 and 7 are reserved as alternative dates in the event of unsuitable weather.
"The safety and maintenance works in Wollumbin/Mt Warning will utilise the skills and services of a number of local businesses.
"Wollumbin/Mt Warning National Park attracts approximately 100,000 visitors each year including many who attempt the walk to the summit. Track maintenance is therefore ongoing.
"We apologise for any inconvenience to visitors caused by the temporary closure."
