Media Advisory - Town Link Track Closes Temporarily
The Town Link walking track which runs from Wynyard Crescent to Thompson Street will be closed from Monday 21 May until mid-August to allow the replacement of a water main.
Queenstown Lakes District Council project manager Lane Vermaas said a water rising main needed to be replaced between Fernhill Reservoirs 1 and 2 and the work posed a safety risk for members of the public.
“The track is not wide enough for both machinery and track users so we will be taking the precaution of closing the track while the work takes place,” Mr Vermaas said.
“The closure also applies at night and we ask all people who usually use the track, whether a pedestrian or a cyclist to use other routes to and from town for the time being.”
Signage has been put in place advising of the closure and the Council apologises for any inconvenience.
