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.
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.
