42 Traverse cut back postponed

November 05, 2015

Damage done by 4WD's while the route is closed has resulted in DoC blocking the entrances until 1 December, which means no access for the vehicles needed to get to the work sites.
A new date is being investigated and will be advertised.

A note from DoC..

"Many apologies for the inconvenience of this. The people doing the damage have cost the Department several thousand dollars in repair bills and so we were forced to take pretty radical action with the T42. It was definitely not our preferred option, as it is only a tiny minority of people doing it, but was the only option for us.
Please do let me know if there is anything that I can help with. I have also included the link to the Ruapehu Bulletin article."
