Living Streets Aotearoa awarded $1,500 to improve Karaka Bay track

Living Streets Aotearoa has received $1,500 to assist with the design and installation of signs to mark public access on a little-known track from Nakora Road to Karaka Bay Road in Wellington.

The funds were made available through the New Zealand Walking Access Commission's Enhanced Access Fund, which supports projects designed to obtain certain and enduring access, such as negotiations to secure access agreements, legal or survey costs of obtaining access, or the cost of obtaining Resource Management Act consents and signage.

New Zealand Walking Access Commission chief executive Eric Pyle said the new signs would make it easier for walkers to locate and follow the track, which follows an unformed legal road currently maintained by volunteers.

“At the moment, the track is used mostly by a few locals, for walking and to exercise their dogs. Signage will mean more walkers using this track, and others which it joins up with.â€
