Cape York Peninsula - Telegraph Track

Telegraph Track

There are two major roads penetrating the Bamaga Seisia region; the PDR or peninsula development road and the OTL or overland telegraph line (commonly referred to as the tele track) The tele track was used for construction and maintenance of the OTL until it was superseded by fibre optic cables, and is now used by four-wheel drive vehicle enthusiasts in the dry season. Many crossings, such as the bridge over the Wenlock near Moreton station, have been upgraded; however, many fords remain.

Famous quotes containing the word track:

    If you are ambitious of climbing up to the difficult, and in a manner inaccessible, summit of the Temple of Fame, your surest way is to leave on one hand the narrow path of Poetry, and follow the narrower track of Knight-Errantry, which in a trice may raise you to an imperial throne.
    Miguel De Cervantes (1547–1616)
