Looks like the GGG group managed to get the road opened again by putting some pressure on the council:


We have a new bypass trail around the Cecil Rd blockade.
This takes riders around the series of trenches and downed trees. The trail is around 300M long and soft in places but will “bed in” with use.
For those familiar with Cecil Rd, note that the huge trenches have drained a couple of the larger puddles / bogs so that’s got to be a win.
We now have the complete cycle access to Cecil / Leslie Rd’s restored, one of the best gravel riding links in the central North Island.
