Locals and holidaymakers will soon be able to enjoy the new walking trails at the iconic Wreck Point Lookout.
Construction is underway on the 495 metre track which will connect Cooee Bay Beach and Lammermoor Beach.
Member for Keppel Brittany Lauga says the new walking track will improve accessibility between the two beaches.
“The beautiful shores of our region are a major draw point for tourists, and it’s what makes the lifestyle for locals so good,” she says.
“By investing in Wreck Point and delivering a new walking trail we can build on that fantastic lifestyle and make the region more accessible to tourists and locals alike.”
Construction will begin on a 40 metre long bridge at the end of this year, while the first stages of the track are expected to be open in the coming weeks.
Livingstone Mayor Andy Ireland says $500,000 of funding has been provided by the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) and Council has contributed a further $260,000 towards the project.
“The project includes the construction of stairways and rest areas, widening of the naturally formed ‘goat tracks’ where safe to do so, improved beach access, planting of coastal vegetation and eventually construction of a bridge to connect the two trails,” he says.
“These trails will provide another great way for residents and visitors to unwind, get fit and connect with nature.”
