The lower section of the Mangapurua Track – part of the Mountains to Sea NZ Cycle Trail – is closed due to ongoing landslips and significant groundworks to remove overhanging rocks. Due to the scale of the work and remote nature of the site, this section of track may remain closed for the next month or two.An update will be made once assessments/work has been made. Access from the Bridge to Nowhere End along the track to the bluffs is still open. (However there is no through access.)
- Be aware that through Spring, there maybe rocks caused by slipping along the road after heavy rain on the Whanganui River Road.
- The new bridge opening at Ūpokongaro has been delayed - however we are all looking forward to riding the new section and will advise once open.
