Plantation Harvest and Haulage at Deans Springs – Porepunkah

March 7, 2017

We will be working in the Porepunkah area soon

Road works will be undertaken in the Porepunkah Plantation 20-30 March 2017, in preparation for the harvesting and haulage of plantation timber that will commence 26 April 2017.

The majority of the plantation timber will be trucked out via Ritchie Road onto the Buckland Valley Road to local mills for processing.

Please be aware there will be an increase in heavy vehicle machinery and plantation road closures. Please seek alternative spaces for recreation.

It is expected the area harvested in April/May 2017 (see map below) will be re-established to pine plantation this winter.

The remainder of the area to be harvested will approximately commence in October 2017 (see map below).

There will be traffic management around the site on the Great Alpine Road to allow for the safe passage of vehicles during the plantation harvest operation.


Information drop-in sessions will be held

Please feel welcome to drop by Wednesday 15 March

Either 9:00am-10.00am; or 4:30pm-5:30pm

Punkah Pantry, 3 Nicholson St Porepunkah
