First suspension bridge on display at Coastal Walkway

Friday 26 Apr 2024
Grey Gully Bridge

The first suspension bridge has been erected at Grey Gully along the Coastal Walkway marking a significant milestone in the project.

The first sections (bridge portals and platform landings) were transported and installed at Grey Gully last week.

The suspension cables were then established before the remaining sections were then put into place using a crane.

After months of preparation works underground to form the bridge footings, it is an exciting development in the project.

The Grey Gully bridge was built first and work is now expected to start at Kurnabinna Bridge next week.

Following completion of each bridge, works will then focus on finalising the construction and linking of the surrounding boardwalk paths.

While the first bridge is now visible along the esplanade, there is still a number of works that need to take place before opening the bridges officially.

The entire area encompassing the project still remains a construction site and cannot be accessed.

It is anticipated both bridges will be in place very soon, with the overall project expected to be completed by mid-2024.

The Coastal Walkway is located in the Marion Coast Park which extends 7.2 km from Marino in the north, to the Hallett Headland Reserve at Hallett Cove in the south.
