Hauraki Rail Trail - Waihi to Waikino Section to re-open

TRAIL SAFETY UPDATE: Hauraki Rail Trail

DATE: 14 June 2018

ISSUE: Waihi-Waikino section to re-open

The Waihi-Waikino section is still closed but is expected to open tomorrow (15.6.18) with some provisos.

The culverts and scouring have been repaired, debris removed, and sand and silt cleared off. The trail will be rideable but it is currently not at a grade one standard with many surface blemishes. Extra care is required if riding this section over the weekend.

The trail are hoping to have this resolved as soon as they can get across the farm accesses, which are currently waterlogged. We also hope to get a layer of fine metal on the trail to make the ride more comfortable. The train is operating, and for timetables and any other enquiry please contact www.waihirail.co.nz or call 07 863 9020.
