Overgrown and hidden for many years, TTMS re opened and rebuilt the access track built by WW2 soldiers manning the concrete gun emplacements at West Head, north of Sydney.
This steep track located near the popular West Head Lookout was rebuilt using rustic, split sandstone steps. The track needed to be both sympathetic to the original “she’ll be right mate” approach used by wartime soldiers to provide access while waiting to defend Sydney against any Japanese attack and also meet modern design standards. The result is very different to the formal appearance of stone steps TTMS created just south across the water at Barrenjoey Headland. The two tracks demonstrating that the style of track can vary depending on its location and intended usage.
