Work begins on Motutara Point / Sanatorium track upgrade
Over the next month (weather dependent), sections of the old boardwalk and bridges on the Motutara Point / Sanatorium track are being upgraded by local contractor GRB Builders.
The upgraded boardwalk and bridges will be made from composite material (fibre glass) - a more durable material for the geothermal environment.
Parts of the track located behind the Energy Events Centre will be closed as it’s worked on, please follow the redirection signage to keep yourself safe.
This project is co-funded by Council and Kānoa - Regional Economic Development & Investment Unit, as part of the Whakarewarewa Forest Development - lakefront to forest upgrade. The upgrade focusses on achieving better connection between these popular destinations and aims to meet the contemporary needs of both the community and visitors.
