Batger Quarry Track Opened

By: Ian Fish

8 years after its initial formation the walking track through Batger Quarry has been upgraded and is now open to the public.

The new work to the track was funded by the Eden Albert Community Board and opened by the chair of the community board Christopher Dempsey and councilor Glenda Fryer.

The track is part of the "Round the Maunga walk"  but also acts as an important access route for the Friends of Maungawhau ecological restoration project in the Batger Quarry.

The Friends are promoting better walks for recreation and enjoyment of this international heritage site so as to better protect the archeological and natural features of Maungawhau/Mt Eden.
