Information on kauri dieback and tracks

t Austen made this Official Information request to Department of Conservation

The request was successful.

From: t Austen

Dear Department of Conservation,
I would like to know why the department did not close all the tracks it judged to be affected by kauri dieback before upgrading and reopening them, but instead chose to leave most of them open and upgrade them progressively.

Apart from Goldies Bush, why has DOC not asked The Ministry of Primary Industries to declare controlled area notices over tracks that have been upgraded and reopened ?

How many kilometres of track has been upgraded to the national kauri dieback track standard and what was the cost ?

Yours faithfully,

T Austen
