$334,000 for Remutaka Cycle Trail

MP for Hutt South Chris Bishop has welcomed the announcement today of $334,125 of government funding for the Remutaka Cycle Trail.

“This new funding will build a bridge at Siberia Stream, upgrade to some sections of the trail which are currently un-rideable, and install toilet facilities on the exposed Wild Coast section of the trail”, says Mr Bishop.

The funding comes from the government’s Maintaining the Quality of Great Rides Fund.

“The New Zealand Cycle Trail, established by the previous National-led government, has been an outstanding success, including for the Hutt Valley. In January 2015 the Remutaka Cycle Trail was named as one of the "hottest" destinations in the world by Lonely Planet, a wonderful endorsement of this excellent regional asset.

The Great Rides showcase the very best of our great country and attract domestic and international tourists.

“It’s great to see the new government continuing to fund Ngā Haerenga, the New Zealand Cycle Trail. I look forward to further development of the Remutaka Trail in due course.”
