Pinnacle Road guardrail

Pinnacle Road guardrail

To meet Australian safety standards, galvanised barrier guardrails will be installed along Pinnacle Road, on kunanyi/Mt Wellington, above The Springs. They will replace the old posts and guide ropes, which were installed in the 1930s.

The existing posts and guide ropes will be carefully removed and retained for future use.

Stage 1 - October 2021

During October and November 2021, 1.5km of guardrail was replaced, from The Springs to the Lower Sawmill trail head.

Stage 2 - March 2022

The second stage of the Pinnacle Road guardrail replacement commenced on 7 March 2022 will take approximately 5 weeks to complete, weather permitting.

These dates may require updating depending on weather conditions, so stay connected to our social media for further updates if required.

For the safety of workers and all road users, traffic will be reduced to one lane while works are being undertaken. Traffic management will be in place to guide motorists, cyclists, and walkers safely past the work site.

Both lanes will be open after work hours, and barriers will be in place for the duration of the works.
