Blackbutt-Yarraman BVRT section is now officially awesome.
Another win for the BVRT Users Association and a huge thank you to DTMR, Toowoomba Regional Council and the Ambassadors for the BVRT.
Yarraman to Blackbutt was always a bit iffy for cyclists. 19 gates in 19 km was a real pain. Not anymore.
Following correspondence and discussions with Toowoomba Regional Council and the Ambassadors for the BVRT, all but two gates have either had a grid installed beside them or are fastened permanently open, except when they need to be closed for stock control.
It makes an enormous difference. The reaction of cyclists we met along the way was that the grids are “awesome”.
