Repairs to Coombs to Parksville Trail start

Popular recreational course damaged from flooding in January

Initial repairs to the damaged section of the Coombs to Parksville trail between Virginia Road and the Woodlot driveway commenced last week.

The Regional District of Nanaimo is advising the public to use caution when travelling along this section and to seek an ‘OK’ from crews before passing large equipment.

The section of the trail suffered damages due to flooding that occurred in late January. The trail surface became uneven and the trail sides have been damaged due to the heavy rains.

The trail west of the driveway to Virginia Road was closed until further notice.
