Is the goat track open?

Postby themerlin » Wed Jan 01, 2014 12:36 pm

Anyone know if the work on the goat track has been finished, I have seen a few people do the strava segment so I'm guessing it's open.
If so what is the new surface like?

This is the Samford/Nebo goat track.

Won't be open till May this year.

Those people are probably just checking out the progress.

Nope she's now officially closed off while construction crews repair the road and remove overhanging boulders. It's still open in parts for the few locals that live on it but the majority is closed. THey have a site office set up and all.

I've got to say i'm amazed that it is happening, I thought for sure it had been abandoned for good.

I haven't been up there recently but no chance. The work they are doing requires the road to be blocked off from all traffic be it cars, motorbikes, cyclists and pedestrians.

That link is superb, looks like they are actually paving the whole thing.
The day this gets reopened there's gonna be big line up.

I'm not sure about paving/asphalt the whole thing. Something I read somewhere said it was a like-for-like repair of the road. So dirt track (with better drainage and rock protection, I suppose).

I might be wrong tho.
