New walking track and swingbridge mooted for Reefton

From local democracy reporter Lois Williams:
A new walking and cycling track between Reefton and Blacks Point is on the cards at last, according to Inangahua Community Board chairman John Bougen.

The proposed track would follow the line of the water race being built and restored by the Reefton Powerhouse Trust, along the west bank of the Inangahua River, Bougen told the board meeting this week.

"There's been considerable talk in the past about a swingbridge to be built at Blacks Point which would then enable people to go into town on the Powerhouse Walk, or come from the [town end] swingbridge, which is about to have a new ramp on it."

The NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) had listened to the council and people who wanted a safer way of walking between Reefton and Blacks Point, he said.

"That would be a lovely walk and connect with some of the other walks in the area so you could do a circuit without having to go on the main road, which is actually really hairy when [cyclists and walkers] are coming in that way."

The council was now looking favourably on the idea of taking ownership of the new swingbridge that would be needed at the Blacks Point end of the walk, Bougen said.

"That is the one thing that has been holding this project back, so if that could happen, it would be a fitting end to my time on council and it would make the people of Blacks Point very happy."

NZTA was also looking at reducing the speed limit through Blacks Point, probably to 60kmh, with an 80kmh limit on the remaining stretch into Reefton, he said.

The board chairman is not planning to stand again for the Buller District Council in next year's local body elections.

A West Coast council has lost all of its senior managers after a restructure in the wake of a review that uncovered an environment of “mistrust and division” at the organisation.

All four senior managers at the Grey District Council decided not to reapply for jobs after their roles were disestablished.

The council announced the senior management restructure to staff via Zoom during the August lockdown. The managers knew of proposed changes, but not how their roles would be affected.

Under the restructure, the infrastructure services, corporate services, environmental services and community development manager roles have been axed. Six new roles were created. Continue reading here.
