WP CT 11-005 Lake Esplanade & Beach Street Upgrades
Client: Queenstown Lakes District Council
This project involved the upgrade of existing pavement and infrastructure on Beach Street and Lake Esplanade between the One-Mile roundabout and Shotover Street/Beach Street intersection. To provide a high quality pavement that will withstand future traffic loadings, geometric design that improves stormwater drainage and pedestrian and cycle safety.

The site is unique in terms of the diversity of its customers and includes hoteliers, visitors, residents, tourism operators, all day parking and the flow of some 10,000 cars, buses and trucks per day. Lake Esplanade serves as the only link to the busy suburbs of Fernhill and Sunshine Bay and as such, is a critical route. In addition, the site and adjacent recreation reserve are important amenity features on the lakefront and the aesthetics of the finished project had to fit with that environment.
The project was completed on time and to a high standard. Positive feedback was received on the construction works and the result from both adjacent business owners and the client. Feedback from the client included:
“The project has been received as a tremendous success by the community and we are delighted with the results. Throughout the works the project team consistently put the customer first. This was evident in their planning, public consultation and the methodology with which they undertook the work. During the project the site was perceived as busy but highly organised, no mean feat given the complexity of the work and the challenges presented along the way. The speed at which the project was completed was also very impressive. It is a credit to the team that no complaints were received about the traffic management or the project in general. Since its completion, positive feedback has been received from road users, business operators and residents alike. The project stands as an example of what can be achieved with the right team in place, focused on delivering excellence and great value.”

Client: Millbrook Country Club Ltd
This project was to upgrade the residential roads at Millbrook Resort which included earthworks, services and roading using Foamed Bitumen Stabilisation and Asphalt surfacing.

Millbrook Resort's Project Manager, Malika Elner said:
"We chose Foam Bitumen Stabilising as the system to rebuild our roads because it provides a high quality roading network to match anything else around. Millbrook is committed to maintaining the highest standards for its infrastructure network and these road reconstructions reflect that."
