Trail receives $500,000 from Provincial Growth Fund
24 February 2018
Trail Manager

We are thrilled with the announcement of $500,000 to Westland District Council for the West Coast Wilderness Trail from the new $1billion regional growth fund. This is a real milestone for the trail. It supports five projects and means the trail can reach what is called "completion". From a rider perspective the main additional work is taking the trail off the road through an outstanding extension at Mahinapua Creek incorporating this historic Mahinapua Bridge. A big thumbs up and thank you to everyone who has helped get to this point.
