The popular trail along the northern bank of Narrabeen Lagoon will close for four weeks (16 September - 11 October) to allow Northern Beaches Council contractors to finish building a new overwater boardwalk between Deep Creek Reserve and Bilarong Reserve.

The Narrabeen Lagoon Trail Overwater Boardwalk is being built to ensure a safer route for trail users away from the Wakehurst Parkway while protecting fragile bio-diversity along the northern foreshore of the Lagoon.

“Apart from improving trail-users’ safety, the new boardwalk will also greatly enhance the public’s appreciation of Narrabeen Lagoon’s many recreational and environmental features,” Northern Beaches Chief Executive Officer Ray Brownlee said.

Work has been underway on the boardwalk behind safety fencing since June 2019 and has now reached the point where the contractors are to install the sandstone abutments that will allow access to the structure.

The sandstone abutments have been especially designed with sections for native vegetation to take hold and thrive.

The boardwalk is being built with marine-grade hardwood and features a fibreglass reinforced plastic grating upper-deck.

The structure’s handrail will be coloured in four-tones to blend in with the natural environment and all fixings are stainless steel.

When completed, the work will also result in a re-alignment of the trail away from Wakehurst Parkway over a 170m section of the lagoon.

Council is investing almost $2 million into the new boardwalk to continue its commitment to creating iconic and environmentally sustainable recreational infrastructure that meets the needs of our community now and into the future.
