WAMBA receives AUS$110,000 in funding

The Western Australian Mountain Bike Association (WAMBA) announced it has received AUS$110,000 from the 2007 round of Department of Sport and Recreation/Lotterywest. The money will be distributed over three projects.

The next stage of the Goatfarm Mountain Bike Park has received $75,000. This will be used for signage and the installation of concrete flyovers as well as the design of further trails, rock gardens and a children’s track near the creek.

The long running Kalamunda Circuit upgrade and realignment project has received $15,000. Plans have recently been submitted to the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) and building for the project will start before the end of the year. The trail will be built for all levels of mountain biker and is designed as a recreational trail with a future possibility for a race circuit.

The third project is the construction and signage of some trail in the Dwellingup area close to the Murray River. More details of this will be supplied once all approval from for trail construction have been finalised. This project has received $20,000 and will provide a recreational trail with trailhead signage and toilet facilities.
