Honolulu (KHON2) — It took three years to trek hundreds of thousands of pounds of material up and down the mountain, but the volunteer project to repair the stairs of the Koko Crater tram has ended.
On Saturday, the Coconut Alliance set up the final step on a popular hiking trail. Nonprofits have attracted hundreds of volunteers to manually move all bolts, screws, gravel buckets, and lumber up and down steep 1,048 steps every weekend and weekday.
Over £ 600,000. Of the materials needed to rebuild the stairs.
“I’m very proud of everyone here. I sweated and blooded this mountain at the expense of weekends and weekdays. We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved for the community.” Said President David Nixon of the Coconut Union.
During the completion of this project, the group will carry out repair and improvement work in the future. The formal blessing will take place next Friday.
