On a windy, grey old day a small but effective team finished off about 200 metres of track, so we are now well into the 'Switchback Zone'.
Many thanks to Murray, Alex, Zac, Don, Ben and his kids, Rob, Steven, Ian, Grant and Alex, Malcolm, Craig, Jonathan, and the person whose name we have missed out. The standard of work was very high and will stand the test of time better than any other track we have built in the park so far.
Half the track is now gravelled, and well over half of it has been widened. The WCC will have a contractor on the job soon to build bridges and a retaining wall. The Makara Peak Supporters will continue to pay contractors to gravel the track during the week.
On Wednesday evenings there will be volunteer work parties to improve the switchbacks. Hope to see you this Wednesday after work.
This is going to be an awesome track when it is finished
