The Tasmanian Government has committed $10 million to support priority initiatives for off-road vehicle access and experiences within the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area (APCA) and reserves across the West Coast. The Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area and West Coast Off-Road Vehicle Project has been established to deliver these initiatives.
The Project will include delivery of the following:
Development of a West Coast Off-Road Vehicle Strategy to inform improved West Coast off-road vehicle access and experiences, and delivery of infrastructure elements and other priorities as may be identified, including track and campground improvements based on recommendations from the Strategy.
Maintenance and some re-grading of shack node roads and tracks managed by PWS within the APCA.
- Improvements to general visitor experiences including the gateway to the APCA. Part of the scope will depend on the outcome of the Strategy that is in development.
