Plans for Minnamurra Quarry

The Thompson family, with Councillor Mark Way, are pleased the bike skills track has the funding in this year’s budget

Council has released detail of its plans for Sanctuary Place Quarry Bike Skills Park, and is seeking comment from community.

As reported in an earlier Bugle, nearby residents had reservations about the initiative, particularly not knowing the detail of what was involved.

“So far residents have indicated the same concerns about the access, shared road, amenities block well away from public use area, no regard for passive use (unless a couple of tables is for passive use), concealed areas and one access,” says resident spokesperson, Ngaire Brennan.

Apart from a pump track, the facility will include perimeter fencing, new gates, formalised car parking, a toilet, a toddler track, balance logs/skills track and bins.

It will be open during daylight hours only, and maintained as a Council asset.

The $200,000 project, funded by the State and Federal Governments, is anticipated to be completed by June 2021.

Feedback on the project is welcome until 11 August. Full details at
