The time has come to say goodbye to the bumpy old causeway and the rickety footbridge at the end of Raglan’s Opotoru Road, but not without first taking a quick trip down memory lane.
Despite claiming a number of exhaust pipes over the years, the Causeway access will most likely be remembered for the fond memories of days spent swimming beneath the wooden bridge on an outgoing tide.
This is certainly not the first time the Raglan community has connected different legs of the inner harbour and it’s exciting to be a part of history in the making.
The Rangitahi team are excited to add to the unique history of the Raglan township and we look forward to sharing the continued progress and developments of the peninsula with the wider community, both through the Rangitahi Facebook page and our website journal posts. We welcome you to follow us and share in the journey as it unfolds.
With regards to the upcoming developments, there will be no public access onto the peninsula over the next 12 months; the Causeway will officially close on June 6, while pedestrian access across the footbridge will cease on June 12. In addition, both the walking and biking tracks on the farm are also closed until further notice. Please ensure you pass this information on to friends and family so as to avoid any confusion.
In the meantime, if you have any fond memories of time spent at the causeway that you’d like to share, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Till next time…
