Assessment of Effects (Existing/Anticipated)


Physical Effects (Type / Degree / Possible Remedies / Practicality):

Two detours from main route are causing initial stages of rutting.  Need to
define required route and place barriers to prevent corner cutting.


Social Effects:

Steep track tends to encourage speed.  Effects are relatively minor due ti
good visibility and wide track.  Particular caution needed when encountering
horses.  Stree in track information.


Safety Issues:

Presence of horses, excessive use of speed.  Need to emphasise yield rule
and control of speed.  Risk of exposure on Belmont Tops should be stated
also.

trig.  One of main multiple use tracks in Belmont Regional Park, and a key
access for mountain bikes.

MTB Standard:  Subject to adoption of a suitable set of standards.
