An update on the progress of the East Coast’s mountain bike trails is expected at the Break O’Day Council meeting on Monday.
Tenders for the construction of the two East Coast mountain bike trails are being assessed.
The construction tenders have been through the initial assessment phase and the process progressed to a more detailed assessment of the shortlisted tenderers.
General manager John Brown said the quality of tenders were excellent, with a mix of tenderers wishing to build one or both portions of the trail.
Also at the meeting, councillor Janet Drummond will put forward a notice of motion asking for the one-hour parking restriction directly opposite the Break O’Day Council chambers to be removed.
She also asked that the carpark include at least one disabled parking spot.
“The parking turn-over seems to happen naturally and the one-hour restriction seems to be unnecessary,” she said.
The Break O’Day Council meeting will take place on September 17 from 10am at the St Helens council chambers. The agenda is available online.
