Orakei Basin Walkway

Orakei Basin Walkway

T² took a leading role in the delivery of the Orakei Basin Walkway.  This project involved the design and construction of a walk/cycleway on the shores of the Orakei Basin which would be incorporated into the local cycle network.  T² was responsible for the development of the detailed design, full scheme planning, conducted public consultation and in charge of obtaining resource and building consents in conjunction with a specialist planning consultant.  T² also took a major role in project management.

Some of the issues encountered during the project included how to cross several streams in the area as well as the design of the bridge across the basin.  Appropriate edge treatments needed developing that would be safe for pedestrians and cyclists and appropriate access points from the walkway to the water were also required.  These issues were all addressed and construction of Stage 1 has now been completed.
