Kaiapoi BMX Track to Close for Routine Maintenance

BMX riders will need to take a short break from using the Kaiapoi BMX track from Thursday 3 December, as it's time for its first significant maintenance since opening in October last year.

“With the popularity of the track, it's crucial to keep it in tip-top condition to keep it safe and so that it handles well. We appreciate people staying off it for a few days while we finish the work”, says Grant MacLeod, Council’s Green Space Manager.
