Thark Ridge Reroute Stage 2

10 September 2013

The two ends of the reroute were cut and poles with markers installed.  Slash cut from the new track was placed over the old track, so walkers will now be directed on to the new section.   It runs for 370 metres and avoids a very boggy section of track.

Some rock work was done to harden a few sections of the reroute and also rock was placed in the existing track where it joins to the southern new southern section.
