One year on from the devastating storm that impacted Hepburn Shire on June 9, Bushfire Recovery Victoria have announced additional funding to assist with work on community assets and public land. This will include works on key public assets like heritage railways, tourist walking trails, fire access tracks and recreation reserves.
According to BRV, the eligible works include those required to clean up community asset/facilities or land to its pre-disaster function in preparation for any rebuilding works, including the assessment and management of hazardous trees.
Community assets selected in Hepburn Shire are the Daylesford Spa Country Railway, Domino Trail, Wombat Trail, Stony Creek Reserve and Lyonville to Bullarto Reserve.
Railway vice president Steven Fiume said volunteers were elated by the news that works would soon begin to clear the section of railway between Musk and Bullarto.
“The magnitude of the destruction is overwhelming, it’s not until you actually see it for yourself do you understand the scale, that’s its far beyond the capacity of a volunteer non-profit organisation to deal with.”
