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.
