Exciting changes are afoot, as work begins to remove many of the old cattle-stops found along the Hauraki Rail Trail. The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is supporting the Trail to remedy the remaining 94 problematic cattle-stops between Kopu and Te Aroha by the end of April 2019.
Cheers of delight can already be heard from riders as they watch this vital piece of work being undertaken. With the old cattle-stops replaced and the gates opening, riders can look forward to a smoother, safer and uninterrupted ride.
It has been a significant commitment to raise the funds for this vital project. The Hauraki Rail Trail Trust is grateful to MBIE for their assistance, and it is a welcome sight to see this work underway. The Trail's fantastic maintenance team are relishing the cheers and applause they are receiving from riders while busy at work along the Trail.
We wish to extend our thanks to MBIE for supporting the project, the team hard at work implementing the changes, and of course our riders for your patience.
