Wollongong Council is about to start work on Stage One of the Grand Pacific Walk- from Coalcliff to Stanwell Park.
The section currently has no pathways, making the job a challenging one- but it will open up Stanwell Park to the south, providing safer access for pedestrians and cyclists.
Council says on its website this section of the route has steep and sometimes unstable land, narrow roads and a lack or provision for pedestrians and cyclists.
“Providing safe access along this part of the route is considered a high priority by Council,” they say.
The Stage One Concept Plans included sections of both on-ground and elevated shareware, on-street line marking and a new connection from the southern end of Lower Coast Road to Lawrence Hargrave Drive at Stanwell Park.
The work has been divided into four sections:-
1- Stoney Creek to Coalcliff Station
2- Coalcliff Station to Lower Coast Road
3- Lower Coast Road to Lawrence Hargrave Drive
4- Murrawal Rd/Lawrence Hargrave Drive to Station Street Stanwell Park
Council says there will be some traffic delays during the construction process.
