Access and parking
Visitors to the northern end of the country park have seen a few changes to the access arrangements.
In order to remediate the tar lagoons, we need to be able to transport and store plant and equipment on site, and also ensure highway and public safety during transport movements. This has meant the temporary closure of the car park at Corbriggs and a diversion of the footpath at this point.
We have built a new, temporary car park with access off the Mansfield Road, 100m further to the east. The new layout is suitable for at least 10 cars, and a headroom barrier prevents larger vehicles from using the area. A new temporary footpath has also been installed to allow access to the existing footpath network in the country park.
