The construction of the Whangawehi walkway has been a challenge due to COVID and a storm that destroyed a large part of the track in November 2022.
On Monday the 7th of March 2022, Whangawehi was a hive of activity. The track maintenance team was cutting branches to help with the graveling work. The repair work is now completed, and South Star delivered on site several machines to carry out the graveling work. A health and safety tour was organised to show the contractors the different access points, the general area and the different health and safety concerns to take into considerations in this type of environment. The work started on Tuesday the 8th of March on the steepest part of the track called Mamangu. The progress of the work will rely on weather conditions. We hope that the winter rain will hold off until the graveling work is finished. A big thank you to Westerlund Contracting Ltd and South Star trails Ltd for their support.
