Conti Foreshore Shared Path proceeds to final stage

Published on 14 April 2022


Construction has started on Stage 2 of the Conti Foreshore Shared Path in Broome.

The project connects the Roebuck Bay Caravan Park and Town Beach foreshore to Matso’s Brewery, providing a safe and inclusive route through the Town Beach Precinct.

The path has been designed for people of all ages and abilities to access the foreshore and destinations along the route, including the Women in Pearling Statue on Hamersley Street.

This infrastructure is jointly funded by the Shire of Broome and the Department of Transport.

Vehicle access to the foreshore will be limited during construction. On completion, vehicles will only be permitted to access the foreshore via the crossovers at the Catalinas end.

The Conti Foreshore Shared Path has been part of a larger project to make Town Beach more accessible. Construction to date can be found below.

  • Stage 1A – Town Beach (Robinson Street – Groyne footpath) - COMPLETE
  • Stage 1B - Hamersley Street (Seaview shopping complex through to Guy Street) – COMPLETE
  • Stage 2 – Conti-Foreshore (Guy Street to Matso’s Brewery) – UNDER CONSTRUCTION

The project will also enhance the Jetty to Jetty Trail, which includes interpretation of the area's history and heritage, and was undertaken in partnership with Nyamba Buru Yawuru.

Shire of Broome president Harold Tracey said projects like the Conti Foreshore Shared Path deliver a great benefit to the entire community.

“The Conti Foreshore Shared Path provides connectivity of the town and encourages people to be more active, whether that is by having a stroll, walking the dog, or using their bicycle,” he said.

“Cycling and walking around town is a great way to see local scenery and public art, such as the Women in Pearling statue.

“This shared path provides local families and visitors full use of Town Beach - one of our most scenic and significant local precincts, with activities galore.

“It is also fantastic that the new path will have universal access for people of all abilities to be able to enjoy – our Shire is fully committed to providing a Broome that is accessible for everyone.

“An official opening event will occur at the completion of the project and details are to come in the following months.”
