  • Background

    4 months ago

    Palm Beach is a popular destination with visitors and residents alike wanting to walk between the ferry wharf, shops, Palm Beach Lighthouse and of course the beach. The only existing pedestrian route between Palm Beach Wharf and Governor Phillip Park is via Barrenjoey Road. Pedestrian access in this area is difficult and potentially dangerous with no continuous designated footpath, forcing pedestrians out onto the road at some points.

    There has been a long history of safety concerns dating back to the 1980s and in response to this concern and community feedback we are developing detailed designs to construct a continuous and largely cantilevered walkway from the Palm Beach Ferry Wharf to Governor Phillip Park, estimated to cost around $1.7 million.
