Fort Projects builds Walkways and Boardwalks, bridge builders
Hooton Reserve Walkway & Bridges
Gills Road & Oteha Valley Road, Albany
Client: Auckland Council
Designer: Search Consulting
Completed: December 2016
The Hooton Reserve pathway meanders alongside a stream and gives pedestrian and cyclist access between Gills Road and Oteha Valley Road. In two separate contracts, Fort built 5 bridges and 1.5km of paths; the paths being mostly Hoggin construction with exposed aggregate concrete paths at bridge approaches and road crossings.
The bridges are all timber decked with a heavy timber or glulam beam support structure on timber piles.
The 600 odd tonnes of Hoggin for the paths was mixed on site and spread and compacted by our staff.
An excellent level of quality was achieved in all elements of this diverse project.
