. A few hundred metres further south (between the new overpass and Seaford Rd) is the Austin Rd bike/pedestrian bridge, which has beeen in place for many years. If approaching from the north along the swamp, continue past the new bridge until you reach the southern end of the swamp. The main path turns right to continue along Austin Rd, but there is a side track branching to the left, which leads to the bridge. Cross the bridge, and exit onto Brunel Rd, parallel to the freeway. There is a bike lane. Travel northward until you get to the new bridge, where you can then pick up the trail again. Of course this doesn't address the next problem of navigating through or around Pines.GreenAlias wrote:Since that was posted I have received a trip report from a friend who lives down that way - here is a copy of his log notes -
My log notes are:
(2) Bypass barriers to Frankston Freeway overpass from Seaford Wetlands. The overpass is good but not yet officially open. Do not bypass and take Seaford Road as this includes a dangerous Freeway access.
(3) Unless on MTB, take the Ballarto Road / McClelland Drive / Skye Road bypass to The Pines. The official trail is closed and the walking tracks include patches of loose sand, crossing a drain without a bridge and crossing an area of rocks. The signs are not good and riders were everywhere looking for the trail alternative to the official closed and most obvious route.
