Completion of Auckland’s $1.4 Billion Western Ring Route has been prioritised as a project of national significance. By connecting the south-western and north-western motorways the Waterview Connection creates a direct link between the Auckland CBD and the Airport. The project incorporates urban design initiatives that deliver new recreational facilities, upgraded parks and improved cycling and walking connections to the neighbouring communities of Avondale, Mt Albert and Point Chevalier.
The shared cycle and pedestrian boardwalk bridge featured here links to the path through the Waterview interchange and traverses the tidal zone heading north west into Eric Armishaw Reserve in Point Chevalier. This connection was built in mid-2016 .
ATS Timber supplied the timber required for this connection. This project involved preparation of custom profiled decking and handrails along with a range of SG8 verified structural timber solutions. All timber was treated H5 and supplied cut to length as per contractors requirements.
