Sections 7 & 8 remain closed due to repairs and maintenance on the flood damaged areas.

Please see below map of sections 8 which pinpoints the damaged areas.

SECTIONS AFFECTED -7 & 8 (Kurow to Duntroon and Duntroon to Oamaru)

The section of repairs to Enfield pub is completed, and the area to Waiareka creek along Weston-Ngapara rd should be complete by the end of today. 

The rivers sections between Kurow & Duntroon should not be ridden (or ridden with care as washouts, etc. are large hazards), but road side section and Maori rocks to Duntroon wetland are good.

Most of the Duntroon to Enfield section is unrideable at present.

TRAIL STATUS - Section 2 disruption to the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail is expected during September, October and possibly into November.

DATE NOTIFIED - August 29th, 2017

SECTIONS AFFECTED - 2 (Braemar Rd to Twizel)

ISSUE - Meridian Energy will be conducting erosion control works along the southern shoreline of Lake Pukaki during September, October and possibly November.  While most of the works will be on the shoreline below the cycle trail, some disruption to the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail is expected. 

There will be occasional and short duration trail closures.     The maximum wait is expected to be less than 10 minutes while erosion control boulders and heavy machinery are moved off the A20 track.   It is that important no one enters the area while the track is closed.   Please comply with the safety signage and onsite personnel.

Signs and barriers will be in place during closure and personnel will be present to answer any questions.  Stage one will be carried out in September and Stage two in October/November.

Meridian apologizes for the inconvenience but hope you enjoy your ride.  Stay safe.
