Coastal Walkway | March Update 2021

  • Construction of the boardwalk connecting Heron Way Reserve to the Field River mouth is scheduled to start in June this year.
  • A date is expected to be set later this year for when work to rebuild Grey and Kurnabinna gullies will begin.
  • The design team is currently finalising documentation.
  • The design incorporates feedback from stakeholders, including the protection of the vulnerable hooded plovers.
  • We will provide advance notice of construction work and project updates to local residents.
  • The project will use a mixture of materials, including recycled plastics that aim to complement the natural environment.
  • Council endorsed the Coastal Walkway Concept Design at its meeting of 24 November 2020 and approved to progress to detail design for construction.
  • The Coastal Walkway has strategic importance and forms part of the state government’s Coast Park vision which aims to develop a recreational path from Sellicks Beach to North Haven.

You can see the October 2020 Community Information flyer here that contains an overview of the concept design.

You can see the November 2020 General Council report here.

From 24 August to 4 September 2020 we also provided an online consultation for people to provide their feedback online.

We will consider community views where possible in the development of the design for the walkway.

Background Information

Work will cost $4.8 million. Council is providing $2.4 million, a figure State Government has matched as part of its stimulus package to deal with the impacts of the coronavirus.

Council temporarily closed 2.5kms of the walkway as a safety precaution in June last year. Council reopened about 2kms of the boardwalk in February following repair work.
