Waihi to Waikino section is closed


DATE: 5 June 2018

ISSUE: Waihi to Waikino section is closed

The section between Waihi and Waikino is closed again and will need to be for several days. There are Trail Closed signs at Lawrence Rd bridge and on the Waihi side of the  Victoria Battery / River bridge .

You are able to ride to the Railway café and take the Train to Waihi. A culvert between Pippa’s Corner and the Lawrence Rd swing bridge is washed out.  Sandpit corner is again sandpit corner. There is 300 to 400 mm of sand over the concrete and a small log. Other sections have quite a bit of slush up to 4 inches deep. Between Queens Head and Bridge C06 there is a scour about 500 wide and 300 deep across the track.  Repairs are underway, we will update you as we receive them.

Please ride carefully, thank you.
