New off road walking tracks planned
The Queenstown Lakes District Council proposes to make a major commitment to active travel in the Upper Clutha that sees significant funding for walking and cycle activities included in the draft Ten Year Plan (TYP). Provision of $1.5 million has been budgeted for active travel improvements in the draft TYP. There is also $4.1 million allocated for shared spaces in the town centre, which includes walking and cycling improvements as part of the Wanaka Lakefront Development Plan. A further budget of $820K has been earmarked for the development of off-road tracks across the Upper Clutha area.
