A new overwater boardwalk has been completed on the northern foreshore of Narrabeen Lagoon, ensuring a safer route for cyclists, joggers and walkers while protecting the lagoon's shoreline biodiversity.

Mayor Michael Regan said Council had invested almost $2 million on the new boardwalk that runs across a section of the Lagoon near Bilarong Reserve. The State Government also provided $300,000 in addition to Council's investment.

"This is a wonderful addition to our very popular Lagoon trail and we are sure everyone who enjoys using the trail will appreciate the extra space the new boardwalk provides." Mayor Regan said.

NSW Planning Minister and local member Rob Stokes said the State Government provided additional funding under  its metropolitan green space grant program.

"The Narrabeen Lagoon Trail has become one of Sydney's iconic loop tracks," Mr Stokes said.

"This new section of boardwalk makes the trail even safer and more scenic for everyone to enjoy."

Built with marine-grade hardwood and non-corrosive materials which blend in with the natural environment and protect it from the saline conditions, the boardwalk realigns a very narrow section of the trail safely away from the busy Wakehurst Parkway.

The redundant section of the trail which has been replaced by the new overwater boardwalk will be closed and replanted to re-establish a habitat corridor along the northern foreshore of the lagoon.
