The Platypus Walk Rejuvenation Project- Notification of works starting

Phase one of the project involves removing the willows and reforming the pathway. Greg Jordan and his team will be undertaking willow removal starting next Monday, 19th June. They will be working on both sides of the Clyde River from the beginning of the walk to the weir. Large willows will be cut/paste and racked into piles for burning on the Willowdene side. The pathway will be renewed as part of this work. Phase two will involve a Workskills team at the site for 6 months beginning mid-August. During this time the team will focus on further woody weed removal, clean-up and revegetation post willow removal. The team will also erect signage and seating. We are very excited about the start of this project, which will provide a rejuvenated walk and stretch of river for tourists visiting Hamilton and of course the local community.

If anyone has any questions regarding the project you are able to contact Josie (0427 044 700) or Eve (0429 170 048).
