​​​Extensive programmed road works on the Dove Lake Road at Cradle Mountain are scheduled from Monday 20th January 2020 until Friday 31st January 2020. This is to repair damaged sections of road, resurface and clear culverts to allow for the ongoing safe access of shuttle buses, private vehicles and construction traffic. The following arrangements will be in place to minimise the disruption to park visitors.

The road from the main boom gate at the park entrance to Dove Lake will be CLOSED to all traffic between 5am - 9am each weekday during this two week period. Visitors and staff will not be able to drive in or out of the park during these hours.

The shuttle bus service will commence at 9:00am (instead of 8:10am) from the Visitor Centre on weekdays. Park access arrangements will revert back to normal on weekends.

PWS apologises for any inconvenience caused while the works are in progress and we ask for your patience and cooperation.
