​Tasmanian company East Coast Constructions has been awarded the tender to construct the new elevated shared use track across Mosquito Creek at Freycinet National Park with works expected to take around a month.   
 
The new shared use track will improve the visitor experience at Freycinet National Park.  
 
The track will provide a formal pedestrian and cyclist link between the town and the National Park, without the need to use Freycinet Drive and will complement the existing path that was constructed in 2019 from the Freycinet Visitor Centre to the Wineglass Bay trailhead.  
 
The new track is one of the infrastructure priorities as identified as part of the 2019 Freycinet Peninsula Master Plan process and has been carefully designed to avoid impacts to natural and cultural values.

It also reflects the public feedback received as part of the Reserve Activity Assessment (RAA) process earlier this year.
 
During the construction period, access to Richardsons Beach via the existing path from Esplanade East will be restricted. Access to Richardsons Beach from the carpark below the Freycinet Visitor Centre will remain open.
