Sustainable Timber Tasmania and Parks and Wildlife Service announce road opening

21/05/2019

Florentine Road and Arve Road (to the Hartz Mountain junction) are officially reopened to the public.


As a result of the Gell River and Riveaux Road bushfires, Florentine Road and Arve Road have remained closed since the beginning of the year due to unsafe and hazardous conditions.


After extensive work by Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) and Sustainable Timber Tasmania (STT), these roads are now reopened for public access. 


PWS and STT would like to remind visitors about existing hazards when venturing onto these roads. 


Visitors undertaking recreational and other activities should know that risk remains in and around bushfire affected areas from damaged trees and unstable burnt ground.


The Tahune Airwalk and Arve Road (from Hartz Mountain junction to Tahune Airwalk) will remain closed until further notice. 


Visitors are asked to respect road closure signs and direction from staff or contractors on the ground for their safety. 


There will be ongoing recovery operations conducted throughout impacted areas and there will be considerable time before all bushfire closure areas are reopened to the public.
