Palm Beach Walkway

This consultation has concluded.

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.
