Completed:   October 2009

The Beachlands - Maraetai walkway project involves a number of walkways, bridges and boardwalks linking the two suburbs together.    In order to link Te Puru Reserve with Omana Regional Park, Fort Projects constructed, under separate contracts, two bridges and a 100m boardwalk, all being 3 metres in width and using sustainable Karri timber from Australia. The walkway meanders through a natural, reed covered, low lying sandy esturine area, which is part of the CMA.

Fort Projects was engaged by Manukau City Council to construct these steel structured wooden decked bridges, boardwalk and associated landscaping.    Attention to detail was vital on this project with the finish on the artistic features being paramount to the overall success of this bridge.

The bridge is an artistic bridge with many features that require the very high level of quality that Fort Projects has a reputation for.

The Te Puru Bridge project won the NZILA Resene Pride of Place Landscape Awards 2010 in the Parks and Rural Design Category.
