Closure of Crossing at the Mount Barker Race Track

Published on Wednesday, 20 December 2023 at 2:03:50 PM

The Frost Park race track crossing, which provides pedestrians with access across the track, has been closed due to safety reasons.

Racing and Wagering Western Australia has requested the crossing be closed to meet their requirements for a safe racing track.

‘We understand this is short notice for the people who use the crossing to access the centre of Frost Park and apologise.  The protection of jockeys and horses is paramount to Racing and Wagering WA and because of this, they have stated that the crossing must be permanently closed otherwise racing cannot occur’ said Julian Murphy, Shire Chief Executive Officer.  ‘The Shire will find an alternative solution for dog walkers as a priority.’

The pedestrian crossing is located between Frost Pavilion and the Exhibition Shed and will be closed from 20 December 2023.
