Work will commence on 20 May 2019 on the new section of the popular Narrabeen Lagoon Trail, creating an overwater boardwalk on the northern side of the lagoon.

An upgrade is essential to ensure public safety and to provide the community with a unique experience via relocating the trail away from the Wakehurst Parkway.

The new boardwalk will also enable Council to restore the riparian zone and habitat corridor along the northern foreshore of the lagoon.

The Trail, used by thousands of locals and visitors each week, is a great way to keep fit and also provides sustainable access to the spectacular natural environment around the lagoon.

Northern Beaches Council Mayor Michael Regan said the aquatic boardwalk would be an important and picturesque addition to the Trail.

“We have all seen in recent years just how much the Northern Beaches has enjoyed what the Narrabeen Lagoon Trail has to offer.

“Be it keen runners, bike riders or those enjoying a leisurely stroll, it offers something for everyone.

“Not only will this upgrade improve safety, it will provide a lovely view across the lagoon as well as protect, restore and enhance the local environment,’’ the Mayor said.

Construction is set to continue over the next few months with some temporary closures on weekdays. You can check the signs located around the trail for closure periods.
