A project is underway to connect the Hauraki Rail Trail from Pūkorokoro Miranda to Kaiaua. The cycle track will be approximately 10km long and offer cyclists coastal views, natural landscapes and will end in Kaiaua at a brand new carpark and freedom camping area, a project which is being worked on alongside the trail.

Work to begin in March

The 10km cycle track connecting Pukorokoro to Kaiaua has been marked and work will begin in March 2020.

The trail offers cyclists stunning views of the coastline and showcases the natural beauty and wildlife in the area.

Currently we are programmed to have the majority of the project complete by May 2020.

A contract for the construction of the three bridges that form part of this project has been awarded, with installation expected to finish in May 2020.

Features and facilities part of the plan

Design is also underway for a car parking and freedom camping area in Kaiaua that will be the end point of the trail.

Plans for the end point include day and overnight parking areas with natural landscaping, as well as picnic areas, toilets and safety bollards. Work is planned for this area from April 2020.

A robust, adaptable design has been used to help withstand any possible effects from the sea, with work expected to start around April.

In addition to the toilets that will be installed at the end point, a toilet will be installed at the Robert Findlay Wildlife Reserve near the Miranda Bridge in March.
