West Coast Wilderness Trail Detours
The Hurunui Jacks trail diversion work was completed this morning (Friday 11 November 2017) and is now open to cyclists. Trustpower have a contractor starting work on the bridge widening on Tuesday 14 November but there should not be any conflict with cyclists during the construction period.
It is anticipated that there will be at least one more week of bridge closure at Mahinapua Creek with gravel movements for stockpiling to the eastern side of the creek. The stockpile area is full and the rock construction material needs to be placed before more material can be moved across the creek. This period of fine weather should enable good progress for construction work next week.
The Hokitika-Kaniere Tramway bridge abutment construction will start later next week.
