Council is constructing an accessible boardwalk at Ray Brooks Reserve, Palm Beach, Sanctuary Point.
The project involves the replacement of the existing boardwalk, including demolition, construction, and associated concrete works.
The boardwalk project commenced on 21 July 2022. To facilitate this work, the existing access boardwalk had to be removed.
The original completion date of this project was scheduled for the end of November 2022, however, due to unforeseen, prolonged weather events, and extended material lead times, the construction program has experienced significant delays. Council will be proceeding with construction works over the coming months, with the new construction completion date, anticipated to be March - April 2023.
During this time vehicle access to the reserve will remain unrestricted, however pedestrian access to the reserve, in close proximity to the construction site, will be closed. Pedestrians are advised to access the reserve via the walkway between 216-218 Greville Avenue Sanctuary Point (please see the image below). Council will be providing directional signage indicating alternative pedestrian access to the reserve.
The new accessible boardwalk has been jointly funded by Council and a grant from the Australian Government - Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Fund.
