The Royal Coast Track is getting a facelift

almost 2 years ago

The Royal Coast Track is receiving an injection of $1.8 million for improvements. The track is being upgraded over a 9-month period between October 2015 and May 2016.

What do the Coast Track works involve?

Works include:

  • The installation of 1.5 kilometers of Fibre-Reinforced Plastic (FRP) boardwalk at several sites from Beachcomber Avenue, Bundeena to Marley Beach.
  • Construction of sandstone stairways at Marley Beach, Waterrun North and Waterrun South.
How much of the track is being upgraded?

The total length of track between Beachcomber Avenue and Marley Beach is approximately 3.6 kilometres. Approximately 1.8 kilometres of this section will receive work.

Who will be completing the work?

The construction of the sandstone stairways will be completed by the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) and the construction of the boardwalk is to be completed by contractors.

Will the Coast Track be closed?

Sections of the Royal Coast Track between Beachcomber Avenue and Marley Beach will be closed during construction. Where possible, the work will be restricted to Monday to Thursday to avoid when the track is busiest on weekends.

The track will remain open on weekends and public holidays. The closure of tracks will be dependent on the outcomes of risk assessments undertaken by NPWS.

Please check the NPWS website for the most current information on track closures. This information will be regularly updated. Visit the NPWS website for more information on the Royal Coast Track Upgrade.
