Grand walk master plan

WOLLONGONG City Council is inviting the community to attend up-coming information sessions about the proposed Grand Pacific Walk.
Following community consultation early last year, Council has developed a Grand Pacific Walk draft Masterplan and Stage One Concept Plan which are on exhibition until February 10.
The proposal is to build on the existing shared pathways along the coastline to link the Royal National Park to Lake Illawarra.
Dubbed the Grand Pacific Walk, the path will run parallel to the Grand Pacific Drive and will be a great asset for the community, linking suburbs in the north with those in the south.
The Stage One Concept Plan, covering the section of proposed path from Station Street Stanwell Park to Paterson Road Coalcliff, can also be viewed on Council’s website.
The Concept Plan includes a new, shared path on the eastern side of Lawrence Hargrave Drive.
Council said it has made safe access within this section a top priority, as the road corridor is narrow and the adjacent land steeply sloping.
The community can view the draft plans and speak to Council officers about the project at the following information sessions:
* Wednesday January 22 5:30-7:30pm at the Country Women’s Association Hall, The Drive, Stanwell Park.
* Sunday January 26 8-11am at a community kiosk at the Australia Day Aquathon, Cliff Road, Wollongong.
More information on the Grand Pacific Walk is available at
