Trail maintenance time…

We have been taking time out during the ‘quiet’ season to help out with some trail building and maintenance on our local trails here on the Kapiti Coast.

We needed to bring in the big guns for some heavy lifting of 800kg hoppers of gravel to bolster up an area of track where the clay gets pretty mushy after rainfall, 38 loads kept the chopper busy for a while…

This was followed by a couple of weekends of work parties to get the gravel spread over the track.

A further chopper sortie was required to lift two bridge material packages high up to an area where a couple of local creeks need bridging, all we need to do now is dig the foundations and build the bridges. Once these are completed and official sign off by the council is achieved there is going to be a grand celebration!

A big thanks to Kapiti HeliworX…
