$11,000 grant to help build Pauanui-Tairua Trail


The Hikuai District Trust has won an $11,000 grant to help complete stage two of the 25-kilometre Pauanui-Tairua Cycle and Walkway.

The trail, when completed, will allow residents and tourists to walk and cycle safely between Pauanui and Tairua. But first, it needed funding to resurvey the trail so that it could be officially gazetted.

The money is one of two grants from the Walking Access Commission’s Enhanced Access Fund, which supports local groups to build and preserve outdoor access - especially tracks and trails.

Project manager Andy Bolton says the Walking Access Commission funding has helped the Trust to move on to the next stage of the trail.

"When we finish the track it will be a safe link between the two communities of Tairua and Pauanui," says Andy.

"School children and tourists will share the trail with our native birds and streams."

Andy says local contractors and many volunteers are helping. The Walking Access Commission grant has helped too, but the Trust still needs more private donations to build the trail.
