Drainage in place, gravel laid on a first, short stretch...
What a huge level of support!
Individual donations, Dunedin Amenities Society, Rotary, Lions, and the DCC all came together to make it possible for the Trust to be able to secure the property at Gladstone Rd and will allow the trail to be built to and through the Chain Hills tunnel.
Take a bow, all of you. Your support and generosity made this possible, and allows us to continue the project of building the tunnels trail between Mosgiel and Dunedin city.
So, what's next?
- An easement is to be surveyed over the Gladstone Rd property so we can continue to build the trail, and on-sell the property.
- Then we get down to the nitty-gritty of trail-building (and more fundraising): Gladstone Rd to the tunnel; tunnel to Kiwirail land; and alongside the current rail line on Kiwirail land.
Stay tuned for more updates over the coming months, including working bees.
Please remember, there is still no public access over the Gladstone Rd property to the tunnel, and won't be until the trail is constructed through to Abbotsford.
