Nearing completion

  • Project update - July 2024

    Foreshore connection improvements are almost finished. The footpath is closed with a temporary detour.

    The footpath is expected to open in late July 2024, weather and delays permitting.

The footpath between the Bayview Sea Scouts Hall and Bayview Baths is a highly utilised foreshore connection that currently provides a poor level of service for the community. The path has been impacted by coastal erosion which has caused it to become uneven in places and difficult to traverse.

We are planning to widen the concrete path and better protect the embankment it sits on from coastal erosion. The existing seawall will be upgraded to modern engineering standards which will protect the widened footpath and Pittwater Road from erosion.

The proposed seawall will comprise of stepped sandstone blocks and sandstone rock toe protection, which will protect the bank and provide tidal habitat for fauna.

The design plan was exhibited from Tuesday 1 November to Sunday 30 November 2022 and we received 69 comments. Feedback indicated a high level of support for the proposal.

Thank you to all who provided feedback. You can view the detailed feedback and outcomes in our Community Engagement Report.
