Investigations are underway into improved pedestrian safety in Mc Dermott Drive Goulburn, especially during school times.

 

Both the Goulburn Mulwaree council Traffic committee and council's Road Safety officer will examine the situation.

 

The issue attracted the attention of traffic committee members when they last met with discussion precipitated by deputy mayor, Councillor Peter Walker.

 

He says there are many students at the Mulwaree high school and adds there is potential for a bad accident in Mc Dermott drive.

A hazard burn-off has been scheduled in the Tarlo River National Park today.

 

The 250 hectare burn is on the southern side of the reserve between Potters north trail and the Tarlo River and is designed to protect the park.

 

The burn off effects will also limit the potential spread of wildfire onto surrounding properties.

 

Illawarra Highlands National Parks and Wildlife Service acting manager, Melinda Norton says access to the park is closed during the operation and smoke may be visible in the Greenwich Park and Bill Hill areas for several days.

Those to make the trip are Elise Thornthwaite, a university student in Canberra, from Trinity Catholic College, Jack Burke and Alex Parlett and from Goulburn High school, Blake Robertson.

 

They've already started their physical training programmes and will attend a compulsory workshop at Canterbury Hurlstone Park in May.
