Temporary Closure - From Monday 18th September the Mahinapua Track will be closed at the Mananui Sawmill site. Cyclists will not be able to access the track from SH6. From the Woodstock Road cyclists can enter but will need to turn around at the wetlands. Signage and maps are being put up at the kiosk, Mahinapua DOC Carpark on SH6 and Paiere Road directing cyclists down SH6. It is expected the track will be closed until 9 October.
Taramakau Bridge - Cyclists are urged to take care when negotiating the section of the cycle trail from southern end of the Taramakau Bridge to the new boardwalk at the entry to the Greymouth Kumara Tram. Currently there is intensive construction work occurring on the roadway in this section and the cycleway has been diverted to a narrow path on the seaward side of the highway. The speed restriction for vehicles in the area is 30kph while the present earthworks are proceeding. It is envisaged that the present construction activity in the cycleway area will be completed within the next month.
