Parks to tackle Railway Trail debris

A team of ten Department of Parks employees will descend on 15 sections of the Railway Trail this Saturday to clear debris left by Hurricane Nicole.

The cleanup will focus on what have been identified as a potential risk to public safety owing to fallen trees that partially block pathways and stairs.

Cole Simons, the Minister of the Environment, said, “It takes time to remediate the extensive damage from a Category 3 hurricane.

“Obviously, after clearing the island's roadways, our first priority was to make our school grounds safe for students and staff.

“This was followed by bringing our national parks, which are often enjoyed by locals and tourists, up to standard. It is now time to focus extra attention on the Railway Trail.”

The team will be divided into two crews to maximise manpower.
