Travelling along David Low Way at Bli Bli will soon be safer and easier for pedestrians and cyclists.

Reconstruction works will start soon on the pathway between Vivigani Street and Blanch Cresent. Division 9 Councillor Stephen Robinson said the works would start with construction of a 150m boardwalk between 5-19 Kokoda Avenue.

“This boardwalk will be constructed on the existing pathway alignment – between the existing guard rail and the property boundary along David Low Way,” he said.
“A new 2.5m wide concrete pathway will also be constructed from the service road at Blanch Crescent through to the new boardwalk.
“This will include reconstruction of the pathway from Vivigani Street to the new boardwalk and installation of underground stormwater drainage along with construction of a retaining wall behind the existing guard rail.
“The existing concrete steps that link David Low Way to Vivigani Street will also be replaced.”

Cr Robinson said the works were the second stage of a critical pedestrian link from Edgewater Village to Bli Bli Castle.
“This is a project that will provide a terrific outcome for all Bli Bli residents and complements the previous work council has done in this area constructing pedestrian and cyclist pathways,” he said.
The project is programmed to start the week commencing August 18 and completion is anticipated within thirteen weeks (weather dependent).

During construction all pedestrians will be directed around the site via a temporary pathway to be constructed on the Western side of David Low Way.
Traffic management measures will be in place to ensure the safety of pedestrians and motorists.
