Barker Ryan Stewart was engaged by Hawkesbury City Council to come up with a concept fire trail design in order to upgrade the dilapidated track along Mt Irvine and Bowen Creek Road between Mt Irvine and Bilpin in the Blue Mountains. The project involves significant survey and geotechnical work – in a somewhat challenging location, as well a concept bridge design and Heritage Assessment.
The existing Mt irvine and Bowen Road track used to be a public road, however it was decommissioned approximately five years ago because it had dilapidated significantly and become a safety risk. A couple of sections of the track have even collapsed into the valley as a result of land slip.
Should Hawkesbury City Council proceed to the construction stage, the trail will provide safe access for all emergency services through the area. The Mt Irvine and Bowen Road track is to be used by emergency services only and would not be open to residents.
