This rail type of fencing is much cleaner as there's no wire used in the construction and, ultimately, it improves the look of the mountain and is in keeping with our environmental policy.

The lower part of Warrens run is now completely re-built using wooden rails - a total of 400 meters. The Alpha traverse is now completely re-built to the Goose burn - a total of 200 meters. The Alpha "get off" has been re-aligned to give better access to "Yokies" and Warrens drive. There's been ongoing repairs to Switch and the Goose up-track.
There's completely new rail fencing on Goose to Fairway and the lower Rabbit run. A new line of rail fence has been built into the rocks from near the Goose drive to the Home Run Bridge which will give much improved access across the burn and will eliminate the dip, making the traverse much easier.
