Detour in place for cycleway repairs

Monday, 17 July​

Western Bay of Plenty District Council are asking walkers, runners and cyclists to be patient while repairs are made to a small section of the Omokoroa Cycle Trail.

A detour will be in place for a small section of Stage One, specifically between Cooney Reserve and Tinopai Reserve, to allow remedial work to take place.

Stage Two, which was opened to the public last week, is unaffected and open.

Council's Reserves and Facilities Project and Assets Manager, Scott Parker, says there is a small section of the path which is muddy and needs some attention to keep the Cycle Trail at a high standard.

"We know the Omokoroa Cycle Trail is a popular asset and the foot traffic across both stages has been overwhelming. With this popularity though we need to keep the track maintained to a high standard so it can continue be used throughout the year."

Contractors will be on site this week and a detour will be in place until work is complete.
