Where are we up to?
It's finally underway, the Te Aroha to Matamata leg of the Hauraki Rail Trail is under construction.
The cycle track has been designated, specialised tree removal contractors have come in and hedges have been removed.
If you follow the route you will also notice fencing along the track.
Splice Construction were awarded the tender for track construction and this is well underway.
The cycleway bridge tender was awarded to Walkway Solutions who are currently installing bridges at various points along the trail.
Other projects that are also under development
- additional directional, information and educational signage
- a landscape design for various sections of the trail including rest areas
We aim to put the landscape project out for tender in the coming weeks. Signage, detailing historic landmarks and facts about families and people from the districts history will also feature along the cycleway.
Frequently asked questions
We've received a number of questions about the cycleway ranging from why are we extending it, through to what are the health and safety liabilities for farmers along the trail - so we compiled this list of FAQs to help answer the most common questions.
