Christchurch Foot Bridges: Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor

Another high-profile project for Cantabrians, this work allows us to demonstrate our carpentry skills and our ability to work near waterways and bridges.


These bridges are significant as they enable communities to become closer after damage from the 2011 earthquake. The three walkways are placed strategically along the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor. Developed by Regenerate Christchurch, the Regeneration Plan is intended to support the regeneration of the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor, providing a vision and objectives for short, medium, and long-term future land uses and opportunities for the 602-hectare area in the heart of east Christchurch.

This project demonstrates our ability to undergo civil and building construction in Canterbury. This specification was for the carpentry package for the approach structures on the bridges along the Avon River Corridor. Some bridges are in the Red Zone and some partially in road corridors. The bridges are:

1. Medway Bridge. Adjacent to Medway Street (East) spanning towards Avonside Drive

2. Avondale Bridge. Adjacent to Briarmont Street (North) spanning towards New Brighton Road

3. Snell Bridge. Adjacent to Snell Place (South) spanning towards Avonside Drive

CMT Group is responsible for the supply of all plant, materials, and labour to construct access ramps at three locations along the Avon River corridor
