On Track Waikawa : Beach access works, June 2018

Footbridge

On Monday 25 June 2018 work begins on resurfacing the footbridge:

Planning to install the project signs this Wednesday and some further safety fencing on Friday with physical works starting next Monday.

The bridge will be closed between 7.30am – 5pm weekdays when the works are undertaken.

Those who find the bridge a bit slippery on wet or frosty days will be glad to know a mesh will be applied to the surface.

Vehicle access

On 28 June 2018 work should begin on the river cut. A small team of locals will be co-ordinating with Horizons Regional Council and Horowhenua District Council. More information to come.

Boat Day in the 1980’s before the old bridge was washed away by a flood in March 1990. This was before the days of OSH as the bridge had no handrails and looked as though it fall into the river at any time
