Location: Routeburn Track
Project Completion Date: October 2013
Company: Department of Conservation
The project involved upgrading the prestigious Routeburn Track by widening and watertabling the track which included some major re-alignments through solid rock. Large sections of trees and vegetation were cleared using chainsaws rather than heavy machinery to reduce the risk of damaging nearby trees. Rock that was cut out to form the track was removed from site and vegetation was replanted along the full length of the new track.
