Cycle trails being assessed

Media advisory - cycle trails being assessed


Heavy rain over the last month has taken a toll on some of the cycle trails in the Wakatipu and Upper Clutha.

Mike Weaver, QLDC’s Manager of Parks and Commercial Operations, said contractors were placing cones and signage on areas where users needed to be particularly careful because of slumping or slips.

A geotechnical engineer would start an assessing tracks tomorrow, especially stretches along hillsides.

One section of the Clutha River Track, near the Albert Town Bridge, has been closed temporarily so a full assessment can be made. An alternative route is available along the terrace above the river track.

Other affected areas include two stretches of the Twin Rivers trail; between Lake Hayes Estate and Old School Road, and between Lake Hayes Estate and Morven Ferry Road. The Arrowtown Track near Whitechapel is also affected.

Mr Weaver said more information would be available when the assessments had been completed.

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>>
