The City of Hobart is planning a closure of Pinnacle Road above the Springs for helicopter transport of material for works on the Organ Pipes Track.
The timing of closures are:
- Road closed 10 pm at Gate 3 above the Springs, Tuesday 6 June.
- Road open at 12 midday (frost permitting), Wednesday 7 June.
Please note that if there is ice on the road, the helicopter will be operating from The Springs rather than Big Bend. The area adjacent to the snow plough shed will be closed to the public.
During the operations, the following walking tracks will also be closed:
Organ Pipes track from Sawmill track to The Chalet
- Climbers track above Pinnacle road
- Old Hobartians above Hunters track intersection
- Panorama Track
During road closures, access will remain, under controlled conditions, for emergency vehicles only.
