I have just spoken (through Canberra Connect) with Colin.  

Apparently this was a proposal that Senior Management in the Environment Directorate were looking at but it has now been abandoned and things are as they were.  So Mr Pratt is wrong and the WW can go ahead..

 He didn't know why the proposal had been put forward but he said "they weren't stopping people's access, just locking the first gate." This was to be the gate before the turn-off to Tin Hut Dam.  When I said that would add a km each way to walks to the Bridge or the homestead, Colin agreed "but they weren't restricting access".  

I'd suggest this is something on which COG Management should keep an eye.

I have just been told that an article by Brian Pratt in today's Canberra Ties claims that the Southern Access to Googong Dam has been closed as a cost saving measure.  This is where we were planning to go for the next COG Wednesday Walk.  

I have looked at the Environment Directorate page for Googong and there is no mention of this (but that could just mean no-one has bothered to update the page).  I shall try to find something out about this but in the meantime if anyone has more authoritative information one way or the other could they please let me know.
