Coastal Walkway Design

Warringah Shire

In 2006, the Warringah Shire Council plan to upgrade & extend its coastal walkway to provide safe access for the public to the coastal areas of the Council area.  However, as there were a number of geotechnical & civil engineering hazards along the walkway alignment, Shirley Consulting Engineers were engaged to advise on the various hazards and appropriate remedial works.

The work undertaken by SCE included identification and mapping of the various hazards, and sketch design of the various remedial measures required.  A significant amount of consultation with members of the public was also necessary during the course of the work.  In addition, extensive advice as to the engineering details of the stabilisation works was provided.

Subsequent the SCE work, the coastal walkway was improved generally in accordance with SCE's recommendations.
