Following representations from the community, the ACT Government embarked on a project to upgrade some informal trails in a stormwater and services easement in Watson ACT. These trails are well used and loved by equestrians, walkers, cyclists and dogs.
In the first stage of the project we documented the existing conditions and options for improving the trails including creating a 'Tree Trail' following a desire line weaving through rows of mature Eucalypts. The Tree Trail got the green light and we went on to document and superintend construction of this trail. The final design used crushed concrete compacted into a firm surface to create a trail with a relaxed feel as well as several seats and a boardwalk over a damp area.
