Lake Tarawera walkway complaints too late - board

5:22 pm on 20 February 2010

The head of the Tuhourangi Trust Board says opponents of a walkway around Lake Tarawera should have raised their objections earlier.

Waatea News reports some tribal members have complained Tuhourangi will gain little from the $4 million project, for which construction is due to start next month.

Chairman John Waaka says the land trusts that administer the whenua along the walkway have worked on the project for four years because they are convinced it will create economic opportunities.
