Hi everyone,
This message is to alert people to the fact that the Hunter Water Corporation 
is replacing its water pipeline on Ash Island. Site establishment works have 
commenced and major works are scheduled to start early June 2009. As a result 
Ramsar Road, which provides vehicular access to the southern wetlands on the 
island, will be closed from early June until December 2009. 
Kooragang Wetland Rehabilitation Project (KWRP) staff have been granted access 
along Ramsar Road throughout the construction period. If access is sought along 
Ramsar Road, please contact the KWRP office on (02) 4964 9308 and discuss with 
either Peggy Svoboda (also, mobile 0418 649 308) or Tiffany Jeffery. KWRP staff 
will be able provide up-to-date information and, where possible, assistance in 
accessing the some of the more popular birdwatching areas along the south bank 
of Ash Island (such as Wader Pond, Swan Pond, Wagtail Way etc).
Current access along Cobbans Creek Track (South Arm of Ash Island) remains the 
same in that pedestrians and bicycle traffic can bypass the locked gates to 
gain access to this track but there is no general access for cars along this 
I may be able to field generic enquiries but for specific access issues please 
refer to KWRP as outlined above.
