Linking central Victoria via the old railway line

Trail Upgrade Work Progresses

For those planning to enjoy experiences from one of Victoria’s premier rail trails, you will need to be aware of current works in progress. To maintain this asset that provides a quality experience for O’Keefe Rail Trail’s users, the City of Greater Bendigo council is continuing with upgrading the trail’s oldest sections.

Unfortunately, with parts of central Victoria being impacted by thunderstorm weather this past week, the O’Keefe Rail Trail was also affected. Heavy rainfall has made the reconstruction of the Bowles Rd to Giris Rd difficult, causing a small delay to complete the works. Yet the trail remains open to the public 24/7.

With the interim cleared surface being challenging to cycle and walk on, trail users are asked to be patient while exercising caution if passing through this area.

The expected outcome from this current reconstructed program will be a great reward for the future, so thanks to all for your patience.
