Mersey Forest Road now open
The repair of Mersey Forest Road has now been completed and is open for public access.
The Fish River Bridge, some 1.4 kilometres short of the Walls of Jerusalem National Park parking area, is closed for a necessary refurbishment, and access via Mersey Forest Road beyond this bridge will be limited until the works are completed at the end of June 2017.
A temporary parking area will be made available before the bridge with appropriate signage and a temporary ford will be available for walkers to cross the Fish River and access the national park.
Access to the upper reaches of Mersey Forest Road known as the Lee’s Paddock area, commonly used by walkers accessing the Cradle Mountain – Lake St Clair National Park from the east, will remain closed to vehicles until the Fish River Bridge refurbishment is completed.
