BRUNY ISLAND work around "The Neck" is causing some real issues for local residents and potentially seeing some tourists put themselves in danger
The Walkway to the neck is closed until December, however some tourists are apparently ignoring signage and climbing over fencing to access the lookout.
Bruny Island residents have expressed concerns for visitor safety with fears the ignoring of signs could lead to an accident.
The Tasmanian Government says it's committed to improving the condition of approximately 2.5km section of road at the Neck on Bruny Island.
The Neck is a sensitive habitat and breeding environment for Little Penguins and Shearwaters and an important tourist attraction for the island.
This area is also an important site for the Neunone people.
This project underway is the unsealed section of Bruny Island Main Road at the Neck, approx 3.5km north of Adventure Bay turnoff.
