The Tunnel Gully main entrance bridge and road in Pakuratahi Forest will be closed to vehicles due to construction work, beginning next week. This work will take up to a month to complete. We don't have exact dates yet but we wanted to make sure we let everyone know what is going on before we get started.
Pedestrian and cyclist access will remain open via the use of a footbridge. Check our other entrances in the map provided, to see where you can gain access to the park.
This closure is so we can place a new bridge across the stream. Our current bridge has a loading limit that is sometimes ignored by larger vehicles. While it is inspected regularly, the bridge is also at risk of being washed away or damaged in high rainfall events. For everyone’s safety, we agreed we needed to do something about this bridge.
We're sorry for this inconvenience, however this is important work that we need to carry out to future proof our park. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for more updates on the project.
If you have any questions, message us on social media, call the contact centre on 0800 496734 or check out the FAQ’s here:
