Mauao tracks to be closed next week
People who love to walk around Mauao are being warned to change their plans next week.
The Mauao base track and Oruahine track will be closed on Tuesday, November 17, from 7am to 4pm.
The 4X4 and Waikorire tracks to the summit will remain open. Barriers and security will be in place at the closure points, says a Tauranga City Council spokesperson.
"This closure is to ensure public safety while rock scaling takes place (dislodging rocks that have been identified as unsafe).
"This work will be weather dependent."
Council says a stop/go will be in place along the base track as some works are done above the track on the western side on Monday.
"A sentry at either side of the stop/go will allow people through when it is safe for them to proceed."
