Project Status Planning application being prepared
The proposal for a walkway at Battery Point has been debated for some decades. It provides a flat route linking key parts of the city including University campuses.
This concept has refined the route and construction methods for Stage1 from Marieville Esplanade to the Battery Point Slipyards in consultation with engineering consultants.
Features of the design include a generous 5m width to allow separation of cyclists and pedestrians with a viewing deck including interpretive signage and seating. Lighting, handrails and a 2m wide ‘all abilities’ pathway up the slipyards will be provided. Additional features have been included to allow nearby residents to access their jetties and slipways via steps and opening spans. Continuous bicycle and pedestrian access to Castray Esplande and Salamanca Place is available from the Slipyards via Marine Terrace and Clarke Avenue.
