TRAIL STATUS UPDATE -  Pukaki Irrigation Infrastructure Partnership (PIILP) has commenced the construction of an Off Take Structure along the Tekapo Canal, just upstream of the Tekapo B headpond.

DATE NOTIFIED - 13 Feb 2018

This work requires construction traffic including excavators and for a short time a mobile crane. Safety of the public as well as Genesis and PIILP staff is paramount, and safe working requires exclusion of the public, Mount Cook Alpine Salmon and Genesis staff from the construction areas.  

The construction will involve a continuous 14-week road closure period, commencing from Tuesday 20th February

The attached map details the portion of the Tekapo Canal Road that will be closed, and where pedestrians and cyclists can access the true-right side of the Tekapo Canal from the true left, for the period of the road closure. Vehicles will still be able to access the lower parts of the Tekapo Canal road around the true-left hand side of the Tekapo B headpond, up to the road closure point.
