Dear Tom 
Local Government Official Information And Meetings Act 1987 
Track upgrades - estimated costs 
I refer to your email on 26 November 2019 in which you requested information on the 
estimated costs of the track upgrades required in each location. 
We are unable to provide the estimated costs of track upgrades in each location, as we 
consider this could prejudice council’s position in current contract negotiations with suppliers. 
In accordance with section 7(2)(i) of the Act this part of your request is refused. 
However, we can provide indicative costs as shown below for various components of the 
track upgrade works. It is important to note that these costs do not cover all activities 
associated with a track upgrade, and costs will depend on location, hygiene requirements 
and materials used. 
Price range 
Install 1.2m wide boardwalk (timber or composite decking) 
$450.00 - $700.00 
per lineal metre 
Installation of 1m wide box steps 
$200.00 -$475.00 
per lineal metre 
instal ation of track surface materials (gravel, sandstone, etc) 
$230.00 - $850.00 
per m3 
If you feel that we have not responded adequately to your request, you have the right to 
seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of this decision. Information about how 
to make a complaint is available at or freephone 0800 802 
If you have any further queries, please contact me on (09) 301 0101 quoting LGOIMA No. 
Yours sincerely
