A message from the council:

Tenā koutou katoa

We are helping Greater Wellington [Regional Council] stump grind the old stumps on the north bank alongside the vaulting club (we’re carrying it out, they’re paying).  The contractors will start at the western (Greenaway Road) end and work back towards the Jim Cooke Park area. They will have signage, spotters and barriers in place for the general public.  The contractors will be endeavouring to permit people to go past, but at stumps close to the path, they may need to close track for a little time, so there may be a delay/detour.  Signage will be used if they need to close the track for a longer period of time.  The contractors have been asked to let people flow straight through at peak commuting time for school/after work and at the end of each day, the track will be open for public use.

On another note, the Waikanae Beach playground is progressing well.  We had a day of delay with getting foundations in amidst the roots. However, the rest of the playground is fully open and operational.
