Track upgrade

Hamilton City Council has given priority to building a walkway to give walkers access to the wet gully floor under the willow canopy. A DOC spec. set of steps have been built to give access beside the eastern side of the walk bridge, a track across the grass area cut with a small digger and a “floating” board walk constructed to float on the mud. The design of the floating board walk was established after a trial in the muddiest part of our gully.

This trial proved very successful which gave us confidence that the board walk we have built will be successful. We have an excellent working relationship with Hamilton City Council. In this project they supplied
all the materials and our group did all the labour.

There is still some finishing off to do to the track upgrade.
