More Info →Helicopter transports materials to the Sledge Track, Kahuterawa

A helicopter was used to lift building materials, from a new carpark by the old Black Bridge, for the Sledge Track construction. The Sledge Track is located at the end of Kahuterawa Road, 17 km from the Palmerston North. It was opened in 2003. Ian Argyle proposed the development of the track to Palmerston North City Council in 1999, as part of the walkway network. Over the succeeding years, and following the original survey of the old road, Mr Argyle aided by volunteers, opened up and cleared what would become know as the 'Sledge Track".
