31 March 2015 Works Underway on Foreshores Walkway

​​Work is well underway on the initial groundworks for the centrepiece Jetty4Shores Walkway that will link the Jetty Strip precinct with the historic jetty.

 

Site preparation, earthworks and the construction of a pedestrian crossing of Jordan Esplanade are currently being undertaken by Council’s Cityworks crews.
 

“This Walkway is going to set the scene for the whole Foreshores area and finally, properly link the harbour with the city. It’s an exciting moment in the whole project,” said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight.

 

The Walkway is to be a five-metre wide decorative concrete shared pathway/cycleway. The work includes:

 

·         Over 1300 square metres of coloured concrete incorporating three different colours and six different finishes;

·         Inclusion of stencilled word phrases in the concrete to outline the historic jetty’s history;

·         Inclusion of interpretive signage to tell the story of our history, both Indigenous and European;

·         Inclusion of historic rail lines that date to the industrial use of the Foreshores within the pathway; and

·         Construction of a 10-metre diameter, decorative concrete Turtle – that reflects local Indigenous cultural heritage - and seating within the pathway.

Council is now in the process of calling for tenders for construction of the decorative concrete shared pathway/cycleway.

 

Once the concrete contract is complete – which is expected by the end of July - landscaping, lighting works and interpretive signage will be installed along the Walkway.

 

The project is anticipated to be fully completed September 2015.

 

In addition, Council staff are continuing to work on the detailed designs of Stages 2-4 of the Jetty4Shores Concept Plan. Grant funding applications to allow on-the-ground work on these future stages to begin have also been submitted.
