15145: Walk Trail Signage Upgrade
Poor design and damage to or loss of signage in Bungendore Park is a contributing factor where walkers using the designated walk trails are not always able to recognise the correct path to take, with some walkers becoming disoriented in the park. While they are able to find their way out, many small tracks being taken by these people are not approved walk trails. This is a potential vector for the spread of Phytophthora Dieback (Phytophthora cinnamomi), as Phyto fighter installations are only provided on the defined walk trails (at the junction of dieback free / infected areas). Phytophthora Dieback has already infected approximately 281 hectares of the park.
This project will aim to to design high impact signage, which incorporates emerging technologies (eg QR Codes providing links to online maps and other resources - text, video, audio). Large signs at the park entrances will be complemented by smaller signs at junctions of walk trails, with smaller signs being provided where walk trails intersect with fire access tracks, to identify the correct path. This is intended to reduce the likelihood of dieback spread by walkers in the park and enhance walker experience.
