Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail

Linking central Victoria via the old railway line

Trail Counting – 24/7

Are you being countered as an O’Keefe Rail Trail user? How? No, there is not a volunteer sitting behind a tree with pencil and paper counting each cyclist or walker passing along on this trail!

The City of Greater Bendigo Council has recently installed a magnetic loop counter on this trail, so that cycle traffic can be recorded each time a bike passes over an electronic loop imbedded in an asphalt pad on the trail. This trail traffic management device, along with two already installed infra-red counters along this trail, will assist to record trail use and aid with future planning.

An additional infra red counter is expected to be installed on the trail near Heathcote in the very near future. Council’s staff are to be congratulated for their involvement with the ongoing development of this, the newest continuous rail trail in Victoria.
