Events » Temporary Karangahake Tunnel Closure
The Karangahake Tunnel will be closed, from both ends, from approximately 7am on 16th to 5pm on 17th December. The closure is due to the installation of new lights through the entire length of the tunnel. Health and safety regulations require the tunnel to be closed while this work is being carried out.
The Karangahake Tunnel is part of Karangahake Historic Walkway and the Hauraki Rail Trail.
An alternative route along the other true left bank of the Ohinemuri River provides a bypass of the tunnel. This can be accessed via the track leading to the Karangahake Reserve car park / Windows walk.
