Project Background

The Fly Point to Halifax shared path project, funded by the NSW Public Spaces Legacy Program, aims to provide safer access for pedestrians and road users. These works include making the shared path arrangements from Fly Point to Little Beach, which were successfully trialled since 2019 with a temporary installation, permanent with the works outlined below.

The Victoria Parade HPAA works, funded by the Federal Blackspot Program, aims to slow vehicles down and improve pedestrian and vehicle interaction.

Project Aims

The aim of the project is to improve the condition of the walkway and provide safer access for pedestrians and road users accessing the beach and surrounding areas.

Project Scope
  • Construction of a new 2.5m wide shared path to replace the existing path through Victoria Parade, around Fly Point, connecting to Beach Road and Little Beach
  • Removal of temporary bollards and installation of kerb to separate the shared path from the vehicle travel lane around Fly Point
  • Installation of a 40kmh High Pedestrian Activity Area (HPAA) along Victoria Parade with associated signage and linemarking
  • Upgraded raised pedestrian crossing and new lighting
  • Installation of traffic calming devices along Victoria Parade
  • Upgrades to existing stormwater drainage
  • Entry and exit adjustments to Ngoika Carpark and the gravel carpark near Little Beach Boathouse.

The reduced speed limit (from 50kmh) to 40kmh will make it safer for both drivers and pedestrians.

During construction works there will be intermittent road closures along Victoria Parade with detours in place and a detour for pedestrians through Fly Point Park. Please follow traffic control directions.
