The boulders that were blocking the T'Railway near J.T. Cheeseman Provincial Park have been moved back.

Cape Ray resident Tommy Anderson first raised the alarm over the boulders, which blocked access for drivers of some larger ATVs.

Anderson said equipment repositioned the boulders on Tuesday, and sprayed them with blaze orange paint to make them more visible.

Originally, the boulders had a space 67 inches wide. This gave side-by-side ATVs only an inch and a half of clearance on either side.

Anderson was concerned about the safety of ATV drivers who might encounter the boulders in the dark, or who might try to go through the space too quickly.

He said new position of the boulders is an improvement, but he still has safety concerns about snowmobilers who might strike the rocks if they are covered by a snowdrift.

He still hasn't been able to find who placed the boulders there.

The Gulf News contacted the T'Railway Executive Director Terry Morrison. He didn't know who placed the boulders there.

The provincial government is preparing a response to questions.

    What great communication between Departments! T'Railway Executive Director Terry Morrison has no idea who put the Boulders there. Track the flow of money and see who paid for it.
