About the Project

In line with the Strategic Tracks and Trails and Footpath GAPS Program we will be delivering two new footpaths to provide a connection from Corinella town center to the nearby jetty.

These works will give residents along the streets and the greater area, a safe pedestrian connection to existing footpath network.

The project involves linking the existing footpath along Smythe Street to the end of Peters Street through to the Corinella Foreshore Jetty with another footpath to be delivered along the foreshore from Peters Street to Hamilton Street.

This project represents an investment in upgrading our footpath network as part of Council’s Pathways GAPS Program and will improve access for pedestrians for the community.

Works will be undertaken, subject to favourable weather conditions and be completed in the 2023 financial year.

Link to survey and letter was sent 17 Dec 21 to:

  • Corinella Foreshore Committee of Management (and their associated mailing lists)
  • Corinella Ratepayers & Residents Association Inc. (and their associated mailing lists)
  • Residents abutting all three pathway alignment options proposed

The link to the online engagement portal provided three downloadable concept designs, a questionnaire and an interactive map.

Community engagement resulted in preference for footpath alignment option C.

Option B will be further investigated and considered subject to feasibility study and budget constraints.

Stage 1 - Footpath GAPS Program

Stage 2 - Strategic Pathways Tracks and Trails - Corinella Connection Pathway ($282,498)

  • Construction of a 1.5 metre wide fibre reinforced concrete path from Smythe Street to Corinella Jetty including service adjustments for water, power and Telstra services, and alterations for stormwater pit lids, as required. Where the new path crosses driveways extra depth concrete will be placed (Stage 1).
  • Construction of a 2.0 metre wide fibre reinforced concrete path along the Esplanade from Peters Street to Hamilton Street (Stage 2).
  • Minor vegetation trimming to allow for the construction of the new footpath.
  • New footpath laybacks at intersections and connection of path to existing bus stop.
  • Some existing driveways will be replaced with plain reinforced concrete at no cost to the property owner. The reason for replacement of some driveways is to allow the correct cross fall and match new levels for the path.
  • Access to your property will be restricted for a four-day period following from when the concrete is poured. This is required to allow the concrete to set properly before any vehicles can use the driveway. Our contractor will advise them, in advance, of any works affecting access to their properties.
  • Appropriate traffic and pedestrian control measures will be implemented onsite during these works. This will be a construction zone and we appreciate that for your own safety and others that access will be restricted. Our staff and contractor will notify nearby residents, businesses and user groups who may be impacted by these works. We appreciate that these works may present an inconvenience and we ask for your patience during these times. Our contractor will make every effort to minimise disruptions to recreation reserve users, motorists, schools, residents and businesses.
  • The use of heavy plant and machinery including noisy and vibration works for construction including saw cutting, use of trucks for removal or delivery of materials.
