Clean Up Australia Day 2021 -

McKenzie Foods, Altona, volunteered to clean up a section of the Creek at Grieve Parade bridge on Tuesday 2 March as part of Business Clean Up Australia Day and did a fantastic jog. Thanks to all who attended. FOLKC will be holding its 20th Clean Up event on Sunday 7 March, meeting at Barnes Road Bridge car park, Barnes Road, Altona North - All welcome

Clean Up Australia Day 2021 -

If COVID stays away, then we will definitely be having a get together on Sunday 7 March 2021, meeting at Barnes Road Bridge car park. This will be our Twenty First Clean Up Australia Day event and a chance for all of us to catch up at last. I will outline the FOLKC year’s program at this event, hopefully whilst enjoying a cappuccino in one of the local cafes – If it rains then two cappuccino’s - Yeah!!

Shared Trail Status - Blackshaws to Bluestone Bridge -

Work on this section of trail is about to commence with the trail south of the bridge over the Creek to be the first part of the works, followed soon after by the connection of the Wyndham trail to the Bluestone Bridge. The trail structure beneath the Creek freeway bridge and the remaining trail from the freeway bridge to the bluestone bridge is somewhat more difficult and will take some time to complete. I am hoping that the trail will be open to the community by mid-2021 – Fingers crossed.

Shared Trail Status - Barnes to Cherry Lake -

The final two stages of the Hobsons Bay Kororoit Creek shared trail have been designed and are now shovel ready to build – Anyone got a spare $7M? Hon Melissa Horne MP and Tim Watts MP have been briefed and the Department of Transport is aware of the project. My hope is that there may be money in the next State budget (May) for shovel ready projects to stimulate the COVID economy and help get people back to work – Fingers and toes crossed!
