Temporary closure of Silverband Road for maintenance works

VicRoads wishes to advise that additional maintenance works to repair a section of Silverband Road, will be carried out from 25 March to 28 March 2013.

Repeated heavy rain events have caused damage over a period of time and finalisation of the initial repair works will be carried out.

Silverband Road will be closed between Rosea Car Park and Silverband Falls Car Park for the four days, with full opening in time for the Easter holiday period.

Hi Tracey
Does this mean that Mt Rosea escaped the recent fires and is open for climbing once the road has been patched up?

Hi Doug,

Yes, road had since been opened since the fires and will only just be temporarily closed for these repairs. Rosea not burnt.

As noted in the other thread about Rosea, it has been opened only for climbing. The area itself and walking tracks are still closed but climbers have been allowed to use the very start of the walking track in order to get to the climbers track. This is under the proviso that climbers use the area only to get to the climbing and not to go walking anywhere else in the vicinity.

Yes Rosea wasn't burnt. It was in the exclusion zone while the fires were active but the exclusion zone was shrunk dramatically a week or so ago.

Thanks Kieran. That's great news!
