Organ Pipes access ( 4- day road closure, from 23 November 2020)


From the HCC Pinnacle Road - road status website: -
“Pinnacle Road can be closed any time due to unsafe conditions or traffic congestion. When the road status changes this page is updated.”
“The City of Hobart intends to close Pinnacle Road on kunanyi/Mt Wellington to carry out critical road maintenance work for up to four days, starting on Monday 23 November. The road will re-open by Friday 27 November, or sooner if it is safe to do so.”


Not just for road works.
In winter (probably often in early Spring and Autumn too), the mountain road seems to be closed every second day (or more) overnight and well into the morning due to” ice, snow and dangerous conditions”. Gone are the days when we could drive up any time of the day and night to have a climb. Constant road closures abound. Our modern protector society and no doubt liability issues are ever with us now along with a high visitor scenario.


So, better check the website summer and winter.
