Members are invited to join the 4WD Industry Association in installing signs at the Big Darkin Piggery Road Wetland on Saturday 6 May.  

The Motor Trade Association of WA’s (MTA WA) Four-Wheel Drive Industry Association (4WDIA) has been working closely with TrackCare WA (TCWA) and the Department of Parks & Wildlife (DPAW) to educate four-wheel driving enthusiasts to create sustainable four-wheel-driving practices in Western Australia. The aim of the partnership is to keep tracks open, increase access and ensure that four-wheel driving is available for future generations.

The Busy Bee on May 6 will be the second by the group, having previously installed signs at the Wandoo National Park.

The group will be installing 10 small signs on both sides of the bog hole on Piggery road to discourage people driving over the wetland, along with star pickets if required. There are bollards to be installed to block chicken tracks and a minor side road which goes through the wetland area. Simon Ash (Opposite Lock Midland) has volunteered to bring his machine to dig the holes for the bollards and if another is available this could be used on the other side of the bog hole.

Department of Parks and Wildlife has equipment to install the star pickets and will be providing the Bollards, star pickets and poles for the signs. As last time the more hands the better and if you have equipment that can assist with the installation of the signs please bring it along, such as socket sets and shovels.

A sausage sizzle will be provided for those that help out, so please let us know if you're coming.
