Tulla viewing area to close


Recommended Posts

A Facebook page called Mama Knows West, about Melbourne's western suburbs, has posted that the popular viewing area at the northern end of 18/36, on Sunbury Rd, will close at the end of January. It does not say for how long. They state that the word on the street is that the council, Vic Roads and the Airport Authority are looking to fix up the area in terms of resurfacing and possibly a kiosk, although there is nothing definite on it. Link to an earlier post here.

Not that I use that viewing area, directly beneath the flight path does not give a good view, belly only. One hundred metres up the road there is a sideroad beside the church which gives much better views (see below). I was out that way just before Christmas for a family Christmas party at my brother's place in Sunbury, and I noticed that the area near the approach lights to rwy 27 has also been closed.

According to a report I have read, the area to the North of the road is being turned into a solar collection farm & the viewing area is expected to be closed for 18 months.
