"Territory and Municipal Services wishes to advise the public that from Monday 6 February 2012, Vanity's Crossing, which crosses the Cotter River, will be permanently closed to vehicle access to protect the ACT's drinking water supply.

Gates will be installed on either side of the crossing on Tuesday 15 November 2011. The gates will remain open until 6 February 2012, when they will be permanently closed to prevent vehicular access.

TAMS' decision to permanently close Vanity's Crossing follows advice from ActewAGL and is a precautionary measure to reduce the risk of contamination or an event which would make the Cotter Reservoir unusable as a source of drinking water.

Signage will be placed along roads leading to Vanity's Crossing to alert people to the impending closure."
