2. Increase the car parking capacity and beautifying the site as a destination recreation facility with rest area and the installation of a 3-pan mixed gender all accessible toilet block.

3. Enhance and upgrade existing trail infrastructure to improve sustainability, signage to improve wayfinding, quality cycling experiences and event hosting, along with the installation of trail counters.

With the assistance of Tourism Infrastructure Funding received in July 2022 and Funding set aside through the 22/23 Annual Plan, ICC has a total of $1.528,380M. The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has allocated 18 months to complete the project. Logic Group Ltd has been appointed to deliver the project as two key milestones;

    Logic Group, Invercargill City Council and Southland Mountain Bike Club have been working many months now with Design Base Architecture and EngCo (Civil Engineers) on the car parking and toilets options. Southern Land and Dirt Dynamics have also prepared a concept design option for the mountain bike and walking trails.

    We would now like to share these designs and invite you to make any comments by 5.00pm, Friday 4 August, 2023.

    A public drop-in session will be held 7-8pm on Thursday 13 July 2023 at the Bluff Senior Citizens Centre where we will be able to invite you to come along and ask any questions or provide comments on these drafts.

    Once engagement is closed, all comments will be considered as part of finalised concept designs and construction will begin.
