Melton Botanic Gardens


GR was successful at tender stage, the design and construct of two footbridges, one boardwalk and 500m of compliant concrete path.

There was considerable consultation with Council representatives to determine the specific bridge design Council was looking for, particularly the timber handrail elements. There was further work to be done to obtain Melbourne Water approvals, Cultural heritage and environmental management plans for approval by authorities.
