Manawatū River pedestrian and cycle bridge detailed business case

Consultants Opus International prepared this detailed business case in July 2016 on behalf of Palmerston North City Council and the He Ara Kotahi project steering group.

The report was required for New Zealand Transport Agency approval – an essential step for the project to secure government funding. It recommends that the Karaka tree design concept is adopted and the bridge is located near the intersection of Dittmer Drive and Ruha Street.

The recommendation was unanimously endorsed by Council's Planning and Policy Committee on 1 August 2016.
