Palm Beach Walkway

Palm Beach Walkway is the first stage of the connected communities project. The walk way will consist of concrete footpaths and elevated boardwalk sections, with custom screening and handrails. The completed project will see planting of new native trees, opportunities for community art and an overall upgrade in safety to the current walking conditions along Barrenjoey Rd. The walkway will be one of a kind and will be another key piece of infrastructure to the Palm Beach area.

  • Construction Update

    15 days ago

    Works are progressing well onsite. We have completed the first section of footpath and poured our first 3 piers at the southern entry point of the walkway. We had a minor hiccup late last week with the Sydney Water Main bursting under the pressure of the excavator sitting on the road. With all repairs now completed on water infrastructure and new methodology for drilling piers going forward, we don't expect to have any further issues.

    The landscaping concept design review is still underway. Finalised plans are expected to be ready for release to the public early December.

    We received lots of positive feedback and general excitement about the project.

    Many of the questions raised were relating to the car parking strategy. Information regarding parking at Palm Beach can be found here http://yoursay.northernbeaches.nsw.gov.au/Palmbeachparking

    There were also some questions regarding future boardwalks at the southern end of Palm Beach. Information on future Palm Beach connectivity projects can be found here: http://yoursay.northernbeaches.nsw.gov.au/ConnectingNorthernBeaches?page=2

    Aesthetics Advisory Group

    We recently sought EOI’s for a proposed aesthetics advisory groupmade up of local designers.

    Unfortunately we did not receive enough suitably qualified applicants to form an aesthetics group. However, we will be utilising the skills and experience of some applicants during the concept design phase.

    We want to thank everyone that took the time to come and speak with us yesterday and look forward to delivering the walkway for all to use.
