Queen Street Upgrade

Wangapeka River Road - Dart River Ford

The Dart River ford is a concrete ford that water will flow over at all times. Due care needs to be taken when assessing to cross or not. Trampers need to allow an extra day in case the river is high as there is no other available crossing.

Graham Valley South Branch Road

The road is currently open but can be closed at any time without notice due to slips.  Please contact DOC's Motueka Office to check conditions.
