(a message from the council)

After a week of hard mahi [work] by Council staff, contractors and our friends at Greater Wellington, we reopened the Waikanae River Trail in time for the long weekend.

We closed the trail for safety reasons following the massive storm we experienced earlier this month. We’ve removed most of the fallen and damaged trees, but it is still very muddy on the north bank, and the short diversion between Weggery Drive and the Otaihanga footbridge is still in place.
Work to restore the track surface over the next few weeks will require partial track closures – thank you for following the instructions of our work crews.
