Beachgoers will soon find it easier to travel between Christies Beach and Port Noarlunga, with a new boardwalk set to connect the two coastal hotspots.
The boardwalk, which will be known as the Witton Buff Base Trail will span over 1.4 kilometres and with a development period of two years.
The area which already attracts a high number of visitors is expected to have enormous tourism potential, something that the region needs right now.
The state government has provided the City of Onkaparinga Council with a $2.65 million economic stimulus package which will enable them to finally build a boardwalk that will connect Christies Beach and Port Noarlunga.
This move has been pushed by the locals for many years, and is expected to create a levy of job opportunities in the south.
The boardwalk will also provide extra disability support and access to the already existing path that runs around the base of Witton Bluff.
The existing path will also be improved through the building of the three metre-wide boardwalk.
The Witton Buff Base Trail will become part of the state government’s Coast Park vision, which aims to develop a 70-kilometre shared-use path from North Haven to Sellicks Beach.
So far, the council has completed over 17.1 kilometres of the city’s Coast Park trail.
More to come.
