Stormy weather leaves bad taste for cycle trail


A section of Tasman’s Great Taste Trail has received significant damage from today’s weather meaning a detour has been put in place.

Around 80 meters of boardwalk has been damaged and needs repairs before being opened to riders. The stretch runs behind Nelson Pine Industries parallel to lower Queen Street.

Drivers will now need to exit the trail onto Sandeman Drive and travel along Lower Queen Street until Lansdowne Road.

Repairs are estimated to take one week and cyclists are urged to take care while work is being completed.
