RESTORATION OF WALKING TRAILS - Mt Coo-tha Forest

brisbane_city

With all the rain Brisbane has received in 2011 and from the floods much work was needed in restoring/repairing walking trails.

We have restored many existing walking tracks which had erosion and wear and tear for Brisbane City Council & construction of Boardwalks.  Restoration of trails is using the existing tracks, resurfacing, removal of rock steps for sustainable trails.

Summit Walking Track, Ghost Hole Walking Track, Aboriginal Arts Walking Track, Aboriginal Arts Boardwalk, Eugenia Circuit, Outlook Trail, Simpson Falls Bridge & Simpsons Falls Track have all been completed.  We are currently starting on Stringy Bark Track

We are experienced in the logistices working in hard to access areas.  As was the case with the installation of Simpsons Falls Bridge at Mt Coot-tha the bridge span was air-lifted in by helicopter and many tons of material over the period of construction had to be transported down to the construction site by hand as vehicle access was limited
