Today Martin and myself helped Andy from the FC close sections 6 & 7 and put a diversion in place (we’ll do anything for a free lunch!). Both sections are closed for scheduled maintenance and upgrade works which will be carried out over the next few weeks. As we’ll be re-surfacing parts of these sections it is really important that nobody rides them as this will cost us time, money and delay the reopening of the trail. If you see anyone ignoring the signs and fencing feel free to have a polite word pointing out the error of their ways!
The diversion starts just before the new boardwalk, runs along the heritage trail, turns left though the ford and end at the bottom of the fireroad climb. It’s all signed and there is even a map at the start of the diversion. The diversion is on shared tracks so please be considerate of user users especially when it is busy at weekends.
