Damn. Took 9(?) years to map out 120km of trails on that site - so looking at 2030 before i can use my 15 year chairlift pass on this next pipe dream.

Is this posted officially anywhere? Any leads on the new location? Would be good to know where they're not going to correctly lodge a DA for next (or at all) :rolleyes:

As much as I didn't believe the chairlift was ever going to happen I was hoping there was going to actually be a bikepark, even if the grand opening only had half of what was promised and some came progressively afterwards.

I'm curious where they went wrong, was it just as overambitious as it looked from our jaded views?

Hey dude life's a learning process. I'm sure you got some knowledge out of this process.
No need to eat any hats.
I still hold onto the hope a new venue can be found as I don’t think they will be calling it quits just yet.

sounds like a typical case of too many stake holders all having their input to achieve an impossible outcome..
it is a real shame, but tell me more about this ECBP you speak of?

ECBP was just the original project name. Now that is no longer associated with the Glenworth site, I assume it will revert back to this.

These type of ventures can face many hurdles. There's been 3 parks like this try to get off the ground in SE Qld, one opened for about a year or so and just didn't make the money they thought it would then closed down, the other got past DA stage after fighting in court with greenies and then couldn't get the financial backing to go any further. The third ran into problems when the locals complained about a small wooden bridge on a public road that wouldn't handle the extra traffic, and they expected the bike park to upgrade it.
