Northern Beaches Council is seeking community comment on a new draft plan aimed at safely connecting the coastal villages of Avalon and Newport for pedestrians and cyclists.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said the new pedestrian and cycle link will unlock extraordinary views of the coast and enable safe cycling and pedestrian access between these two villages.

“The Coast Walk is on track to be completed by 2020. We’re hoping it will be the best walkway in Australia taking in spectacular coastal views from Manly to Palm Beach which will be accessible for not only locals, but visitors and tourists.

“The Newport - Avalon Pedestrian and Cycle Link forms just one part of Northern Beaches Council’s ambitious $32.6 million Northern Beaches Coast Walk infrastructure investment partnership with the NSW Government,” Mayor Regan said.

The proposed design includes sections of shared cycle/pedestrian path, some on-road cycleway and sections of elevated boardwalk and concrete pedestrian path.

Copies of the draft plan are available for inspection on Council’s website. The website also has concept images of how the proposed Newport - Avalon Pedestrian and Cycle Link would look as it weaves through:

  • The Serpentine
  • Eric Green Reserve, and
  • Barrenjoey Road.

Members of the community are invited to come along to one of Council’s information drop-in sessions to meet the project team and learn more about the proposal.

Drop-in sessions will be held at both Avalon and Newport at the following locations:

Newport Beach Reserve - (Bert Payne Reserve)

  • Sunday 11 November 9:30 - 11am

Avalon Beach Reserve - (Next to the surf club)

  • Sunday 11 November 12 - 1:30pm

Comments close Sunday 2 December 2018.
