This time last year Bikevember and the Trust set up a givealittle page to raise funds to build a ramp for the Hawea Swing bridge to improve access for cyclists and other users.
A idea of what it may look like is pictured below
A total of $2,760 was raised via the site. The project has a working budget of $40k.
Since then the Trust has been working with DOC on a practical design and has been obtaining prices for materials and construction.
The Trust was recently successful in an application to the Skycity (Queenstown) Community Trust, and they have donated $5,000 towards materials for the ramp.
The Trust is continuing to fundraise andwork on the project.
If you would like to support this project, donations can be made on this page or via our facebook page .
