The modernization of Bonnie Vale campground in New South Wales (NSW), Australia, has begun as part of the $2.5 million infrastructure improvement plan in the Royal National Park, a report said.
The project consists of new outdoor shelters as well as barbecues, landscaping, and road repairs. It is anticipated to be completed by the summer peak season.
National Parks & Wildlife Service (NPWS) closed the famous establishment within Royal National Park in September 2018, citing health concerns due to increased asbestos fragments appearing in the soil—leftover from the demolishment of the cabins that were once at the site.
Heathcote MP Lee Evans stated that the plan would ensure that the Royal National Park, the second oldest national park in the world, persists among Sydney’s most loved for many generations to come.
“New shelters and barbecues, improved landscaping, and road repairs will make visits a safer and more enjoyable family-friendly experience,” Evans said.
“New works will also include installing power for some campsites and a dedicated area for education and community groups. The amenities block has also been fully refurbished and is now as good as new again,” he added.
As per public health or other orders, NPWS is looking forward to reopening its campgrounds to guests by 2021’s end.
