Mike Maher (Transplan Pty Ltd) has again teamed up with Mike Halliburton Associates of Brisbane, Queensland, to assess the lower reaches of the Logan River (in Brisbane) for its suitability for a series of ‘paddle’ trails. The intent is to develop a series of discrete water based trails (for canoeists, kayakers and stand up paddle boarders) along a 40km section of the Logan River. The Logan City Council has commissioned this study.
Landing/launching sites have been assessed and a series of recommendations will be made to facilitate improvements at many of the existing riverside parks and existing pontoons along the river.
The end result of this project will be a series of ‘paddle trail’ maps that indicate to potential users where they can launch their craft, what facilities and amenities exist at each of these places, how far and how long it was take to get from one launching site to another, and the level of difficulty for users.
