Blue Pool road agreement secures angler access.
The DOC Taupo Fishery Management Team has entered into an agreement with road owner Hautu Rangipo Whenua Ltd (HRWL) to secure angler access to this popular section of the Tongariro River. As part of the agreement, HRWL recently upgraded the road and extended the car park. The agreement also includes provision for regular maintenance to ensure the road remains in good condition.
This is good news for anglers, who can continue to freely use this privately-owned road to access some of the most beautiful sections of the Tongariro River.
The agreement has a duration of 10 years, which is standard practice in situations like this. Parties will renegotiate once the term comes to an end. Commercial rafting operators also support the access agreement.
