Waihi Beach Cycle Trail
This is seen as an informal extension to the Hauraki Rail Trail, giving the opportunity to do a day's ride from Paeroa to Waihi Beach.
The Waihi Beach Trails Trust has designed a loop track around the dam which includes an upgrade of the existing track, an extension and a small bridge. This will form part of the cycle and lookout trails. The Trust is currently fundraising for the project. This could also be under construction by mid-2017 subject to consenting and funding.
Two Mile Creek bank erosion
As part of the 2015-2025 Long Term Plan Consultation process, an agreement was reached with the community to proceed with a project to provide creek bank protection to Two Mile Creek, upstream from Dillion Street Bridge for approximately 200 metres.
