Wakatipu Active Travel Network

What is the project

This work aims to provide an integrated network of trails for walking and cycling that connects to public transport, providing a genuine alternative to getting around by car.  

Progress so far

A programme of work to deliver new walking and cycling facilities, as outlined in the completed business case, has been approved by Council and joint funding for the first package of the new network has been approved by the New Zealand Transport Agency.

The entire programme is designed to connect key destinations such as Arrowtown, Arthur's Point, Kelvin Heights, Jacks Point, Lake Hayes Estate and Shotover Country, Fernhill, Frankton and Queenstown.

The first package will deliver new/improved routes from the growing residential areas of Shotover Country, Hanleys farm and Jacks Point through to Frankton.
