Blue Lake path returns to two-way traffic

first_imgBlue Lake path returns to two-way traffic City of Mount Gambier has reinstated two-way pedestrian traffic around the entire Blue Lake exercise path. Council encourages people to continue to practise physical distancing and remain 1.5 metres away from other walkers and runners where practically possible.To minimise the risk of the spread of COVID-19, Council implemented a one-way, clockwise only foot traffic directive around the Blue Lake exercise path as a social distancing measure in April 2020. In November 2020, Council reviewed the directive and reinstated two-way pedestrian traffic around the Blue Lake footpath on John Watson Drive. However, the 750 metre Bay Road section remained one way due to the narrow path against the barrier to the road which makes physical distancing difficult.“We now have a greater understanding that the risk of transmitting COVID-19 in the open air is less probable than first thought,” City of Mount Gambier City Infrastructure General Manager Nick Serle said.We have taken on board feedback from the community and reassessed the directive once again and will open the Blue Lake walking path back up for use in both directions from Wednesday 3 February 2021.– City of Mount Gambier City Infrastructure General Manager Nick SerlePhysical distancing, or social distancing principles still apply. In accordance with Government of South Australia restrictions and responsibilities, every person should attempt to stay at least 1.5 metres from other members of the public.“We have had no active cases of COVID-19 in the region for many months now, but it is still important to maintain physical distancing principles where possible when using the Blue Lake exercise path,” Mr Serle said.Council encourages residents to keep up to date with the latest official SA Health COVID-19 news and updates for South Australia at https://www.covid-19.sa.gov.au /Public Release.
