West Taratahi Trails Group
The West Taratahi Trails Group was formed by a group of like minded locals keen to see safer access for residents and tourists alike to enjoy Norfolk Road on foot and cycle.
The response from locals has seen the project scope focus on Stage 1 - approx 10km up Norfolk Road with a small divergence into Chester Road to access the West Taratahi Community Hall.
An overview of the project and progress to date is available here.
The group are active and update regularly on Facebook,

Having completed the technical mapping information for the trail, a full traffic safety audit was undertaken in January thanks to funding from Ka Pai Carterton.
The traffic safety audit report contained a number of helpful suggestions and has been submitted to CDC.
The WTTG has completed two community engagement events, and recently produced a Q&A document based on the questions raised at these events, and via email, facebook and in person.
The WTTG will continue to engage with residents and landowners, Carterton District Council, People and Places Advisory Group and the general public via meetings, the Carterton Crier, word of mouth, and the Facebook page and are keen for more locals to participate in the project.
