Construction of signage alone the Liesbeek trail

At the end of 2009 the Liesbeek Maintenance Project team and volunteers from the South African Breweries (SAB) constructed three signs along the Liesbeek trail. The signs were made using rocks from the area, cement and wooden ‘plinths’, which had been cut from fallen Oak trees along the river.

The idea was to then attach a perspex sleeve to the wooden ‘plinth’ into which laminated signs could be placed and changed at ones discretion. These perpex sleeves were ready and attached at the beggining of 2010.

The Liesbeek maintenance Project team will be constructing more signs along the trail from the end of July 2010, and will be looking at other creative ways of doing so.
