    Existing Rolleston pathExisting Rolleston pathJeanette, Megan and Andrew have recently undertaken feasibility assessments of seven walking and cycling infrastructure projects for Selwyn District Council. The projects included six shared off-road paths and opportunities to improve the Leeston Road bridge. We developed scheme plans for each of the projects and used these to estimate costs of construction and maintenance. We also predicted the demand for the facilities and calculated the value of expected benefits.
