Whangamata Mountain Bike Track to be Rebuilt


Whangamata Mountain Bike Track to be Rebuilt

The Whangamata Community Board has contributed $7800 from the Board's grant fund to rebuild the mountain bike tracks. The tracks have been demolished due to the harvesting of the pines owned by Rayonier Matariki Forests.


"Whangamata based EPL Construction Company and Thames-Coromandel District Council has formed a partnership with the club to get the tracks finished as soon as possible," said Garry Towler, Whangamata Area Manager.


"The mountain bike tracks in Whangamata are nationally recognised; the Whangamata Community Board support the clubs determination to get the tracks re-opened and is seen as a priority for the Community Board." Mr Towler added.


Work is expected to begin shortly to ensure the tracks are back in place before the re-planting of the forest.
