GIBBSTON RIVER TRAIL UPGRADE

Location: Gibbston Valley
Project Completion Date:  May 2014
Company: Queenstown Trails Trust



Project Details:

The project involved the clearing, widening and installation of a new 6km track alongside the Kawarau River from Gibbston Back Road to the Bungy Bridge. This included the installation of 52 culverts ranging in size from 300mm to 1,00mm.  The project crossed a number of other easements requiring careful consideration for areas such as vineyards. 

We removed and reinstated cattlestops and fences using edge safety barriers during construction.  The trail had to be upgraded to grade 2 to allow wheelchair access.


​Wilson Contractors received a Certificate of Appreciation from the Queenstown Trails Trust and were commended by the New Zealand Cycle Trail (NZCT)
