Popular Tourist Spot Closure Causes More Safety Concerns
Tassie's Parks and Wildlife has again expressed safety concerns for tourists to Bruny Island Neck.

The State Growth Department says they remind visitors the Lookout remains closed and the public must not park on the roadside or enter the construction site at The Neck.

Although signage and fencing are in place reports have been received and photos taken of people ignoring no stopping signs and bypassing fencing to access the Bruny Island Neck lookout.

Since first reports were received in July of visitors ignoring signage at the construction site, additional prominent signage and fencing was installed and PWS staff are routinely patrolling the site to ensure people comply with the restrictions.

Authorities say for their own safety, and in the interests of protecting the natural and cultural values of the site, members of the public should not enter for any reason.

Upgrades at the Neck are being jointly delivered by Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service and the Department of State Growth and the work is progressing well with an expected completion date of December this year.
