Newport to Avalon Pedestrian and Cycle Link

Read our project update

Continuing work on our iconic Coast Walk

In December 2016, Council adopted a $32.6 million program connecting the Northern Beaches through integrated active walking paths and cycleways.

A special feature of this program is the delivery of an iconic 36km Coast Walk stretching from Manly to Palm Beach.

With much of the Coast Walk already complete, pedestrians and cyclists can now safely travel between Manly and Newport with links back into Transport for NSW's B-line hubs and services. This project is made possible through partnership funding from Transport for NSW.

We are progressing with the section of Newport and Avalon with plans to finalise detailed design plans for Whale Beach Road in coming months and we have just started construction at Ocean Road Palm Beach.

In 2018, Council consulted with community on a series of proposed designs connecting Newport to Avalon through a mixture of new footpath, shared path and on-road cycleway.

In readiness for this next stage of consultation, Council has been working closely with key stakeholder groups to further refine the plans.

The Newport to Avalon connection has been divided into three key sections. Click the tabs below to learn more.
