Trail opening delayed

THE official opening of the new Elliston coastal trail has been delayed after a storm three weeks ago did considerable damage to the town and surrounds and the trail itself. 

Elliston District Council chairman Kym Callaghan said a shelter from the trail had been damaged in the storm.

Mr Callaghan said there was no new date for the trail opening yet as it would depend on how long the clean up and repairs took. 

“We don’t have a new date for it yet but it will probably be sometime in the new year,” Mr Callaghan said.
