Meander Falls Road and Smoko Road

Recent heavy rains and flooding have washed away two bridges on the Meander Falls Road. The lost bridges are over the Mother Cummings Rivulet and the other over the Meander River. This was the only road access to the Meander Falls Track, Split Rock Track, Dickson's Track, Stone Hut Track, Croft Track, Bastion Cascade Track and the Meander Picnic Area. A temporary alternative route to the Meander Falls Track car park has been opened but this is a four wheel drive only track and is likely to be closed in wet weather

This road is an important access for bushwalkers to the Meander Forest Reserve World Heritage Area. Forestry Tasmania are looking at options to reopen two wheel drive access to these areas.

Additionally the first bridge on the Smoko Road is damaged and unpassable, this is the normal access to the Mother Cummings Creek / Summit track. This bridge is likely to be replaced in late March / early April.
