The following is from a fellow bushwalker who asked the MRD about the closure of the Freeway PSP north of Hutton Street this week. This is his response and the MRD's.
For the cyclists: Information regarding the closure of the bike path north of Hutton St (see email below).
The current detour meanders around the new estate and comes out on Hutton St some 300 m east of the freeway. A second detour (detailed heading south and not signed) is to cross the â€œcoathangerâ€ bridge into the Osborne Park industrial area and follow Hector St West to, and over, Hutton St and taking the first turn left to rejoin the bike path.
Thank you for the below query regarding the PSP along Hutton Street.
Apologies for the delay in responding but Main Roads have only just been made aware of the closure.
It appears that the closure has been put in place with out our knowledge, by the developers of the Princeton Estate. The developers are upgrading the PSP as part of the new housing estate in the area. A closure of this nature should have been approved by Main Roads prior to the implementation to ensure that we could have notified the public and set up appropriate detours.
The PSP will be closed for several months while the upgrade takes place and once completed will be a far superior path then the original path. Main Roads have requested Traffic Management Plans from the developer which will be reviewed and any changes necessary will be made.
If you have any further questions regarding the closure please contact me on the number below.
