The project involved 1.5km of new cycle trail on road reserve and DOC land, constructed to Grade 2 QLDC Cycle Trail specifications at Tuckers Beach near Queenstown. This was a technical project which required bridge and weir construction, design and build of timber retaining structures, stacked rock headwalls, pond realignments and safety fencing. Enabling works included the formation of a 1.5km trail and the re-positioning of an existing pond which had been built on both private and council land in order to achieve specified grades for the trail formation.
