You may have noticed the road works around our Queenstown office and library located on Gorge Road. Don’t worry, both are still open so pop in and see our friendly team! For information on the road works underway, please visit our Major Projects page.

The Frankton and Wānaka Transfer Station facilities will close every Sunday, starting 27 November until 8 January 2023, due to staff shortages. Both facilities will be open 8.00am-5.00pm Monday to Saturday. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Wakatipu Active Travel Network

Soon we'll start work to construct new trails as part of the Whakatipu Active Travel network.   

About the project

This project aims to provide an integrated network of trails for walking and cycling that connects to public transport, providing a genuine alternative to getting around by car. 

The work will build upon and fill some gaps in the existing trail network, providing better connections to new and emerging communities.

A business case for the whole network has been prepared by the Way to Go group and endorsed by QLDC and Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency. A number of the trails are currently being designed and we'll update here when more details are available.
