    ….when or if the last section (Rock’n’Rollers) will ever open again?

    I’m pretty sure it’s been closed for well over 12 months now, although I’m happy to be corrected about that, so was wondering what was happening with it as the current finish is a bit of a letdown after a the rest of the ride.

    It would be good to know what he state of play is.

    Ah right, cheers Bill. I remember someone having a pretty bad stack on there just before they closed it for maintenance, wonder if it’s related?

    LOL, I’m beginning to think I imagined it.

    The rollers have gone, the route is being completely redesigned. I think there was a wait once they d designed it to get it signed off, then it had to be cleared, then it had to be built. From memory I think they’re at the clearing stage now, it will probably be the end of this summer at the earliest before it’s finished. With bedding in time probably next spring fOr actual opening.

    This is all inferred from Facebook posts. I have no concrete info.

    Cheers prawny, sounds promising. Makes sense why it’s taking a little while in that case.

    From memory its been close to 2 years or more, fairly convinced it’s been closed on the last 2 demo days I’ve been on there, which are every March time. Shame as it’s a good section of trail!

    Ooh, perfect timing, it should help me remember to renew my permit at the same time. Forgot this year and the fine was crazy!
