Kawarau River Trail Detour

Kawarau River Trail Detour

A detour will be in place by this afternoon after a 20m section of Kawarau River Trail slumped over the weekend, Queenstown Lakes District Council community services general manager Paul Wilson said.

The section of the trail bordering Remarkables Park had first been reported as slumping on Friday, after high river levels had scoured into the bank . “Over the weekend it became apparent the area was slumping further and we have had to take action to close the trail at that point for safety reasons,” Mr Wilson said.

Council would re-open the trail with the detour in place later this afternoon. “It will be some time before we can reinstate the original trail, possibly 2-3 months but the detour will ensure the trail can stay open,” he said.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
